Small Plaster Figure

The original was worked in wax and was cast in plaster. It was the first time I cast a figure. The mold was made of silicone, and it was a major learning experience. There was a base for it and the figure was designed to float about 1/2″ above it. I wasn’t very happy with it and it sat on a shelf for a long time. The need for a base, as in a traditional sculpture before the 1900’s weighed on the perception of what I wanted, In the end, just sitting without a base in an impossible to sustain position seems better.
