Navigation Troll

I wanted to go back in time a little and capture some sculptures I made before starting my daily creative logging commitment. I always learn new things with each sculpting project, and this website is a place to capture those lessons for myself and others. This is a critter I sculpted in November 2020.

Navigation Trolls were a staple upon ships crossing the dark sea. Their navigation tools and instincts guided ships thru safe passages to new lands. Armature constructed of foil, wire, and gourd shell. The gourd came from Jack Creek Farms in Templeton. Polymer clay. Eventually baked then painted with acrylic paints.
