|Head of a Woman, 2011 Sarah Myers|
She is not the first sculpture I have lost and most likely not the last... But she was the latest and the largest.
I could not find an appropriate method for producing a cast, could not ship her and in the end had no room to take her with me. I might have been resigned to receiving her in a somewhat Mitoraj state at the other end of the adventure. But a sculpture of her weight, fragility and size (she was life-scale - large life-scale) cannot be packed in a vehicle which is already a solid Rubik's cube of boxes. So here is a blurry picture of my creation leaning against the wall of the old studio, this written lament, and my growing resolution to make something like her in the future.
