After yet another firing failure with the last piece I posted about, I decided to make a mold of the same type of form in order to make multiples.  I was thinking that this would help me overcome the failure rate, which as of late has been 100%.  However, I soon realized that if I had a 3 peice press mold of the form, I could assemble it in any combination I want.

So, the idea now is to create a series of “growing” forms.  Each form will have more rolls and bubbling fat than the last form.

Sorry for the excess of photos, but I thought for the sake of entertainment value, I’d share a picture of what my studio space looks like. I’m officially a crazy hoarder.

You can see on the lower left, under my desk, the ruins of Kevin Gen. 2 (in the back) and the Fat torso sculpture (front).

If anyone lasted through this whole post, thank you.
