I've been working on a new clay.. Nothing really matters on what I've done the last week because the whole idea crystallized today. I've decided to do a sculpture of a particular Warrior who's name is, TOUCHING THE CLOUDS. He was a was a chief of the Minneconjou Teton Lakota (also known as Sioux) known for his bravery and skill in battle, physical strength and for his diplomacy in counsel. The youngest son of Lone Horn, he was brother to Spotted Elk, Frog, and Roman Nose. There is evidence suggesting that he was a cousin to Crazy Horse. He was 6 feet 5 inches tall. He must have been an amazing figure of a man.

"The Protector" Has had a long journey to this point. I started this piece in, I believe, 2009. It was originally a full figure of a warrior, but the clay sat to long and it started to collapse under it's own weight. So a couple of summers ago, I cut the figure down, and ended up with this bust. Now I've got to get it ready to be molded and cast into bronze. So I'm repairing the damage done to it from sitting in a gallery in Jackson Wyoming over the last two summers.

Just spent pretty much of all this past week taking over 71 videos I'd posted on Youtube, and edited them down to just 1 hour and 28 minutes. This video is a short glimpse at parts of that Instructional DVD that I'm offering.. First 20 Orders for this DVD will get a Drawing from me included.

Figured out how to shoot my work from one camera position while turning the turntable with a fixed light setup. 123D Catch is a free program.. Maybe why really complicated items are hard to get to work on it.

Went the 130 mile round trip to the foundry in Bozeman to deliver the clay reduction of Capt. John Lovewell to be cast into bronze. Dropped off the unfinished clay of Mountain Family clay for a bid on what it will cost to produce so I can set the price on the finished bronze.
