I recently spent two weeks in Florence learning sculpting techniques of the Florence Academy of Art from two graduates Thor Larsen and Charlotte Brunhes.  During my private sculpting sessions, I found myself stretching to incorporate their sculpting approach into my artistic style.  However, the sculpture that I created from a live model will serve as a good starting point for a possible sculpture that I complete once a mold of it is shipped back to the United States.right side 2 right side
