Making Moose Sculpture 2023 January 30, 2023
In the summer of 2022, I went on a research trip to the Canadian Rockies in the hope of finding bison, big horn sheep, elk, bears and moose. In those vast spectacular landscapes where these shy creatures live, we saw all but the moose.
Seeing an animal in its natural environment is such an important part of sculpting for me. I like to get inside my subjects’ heads. Sometimes, sculpting is like piecing together the parts of a jigsaw. So I understood the environment but not the moose!
