SHORT DESCRIPTION
Quick info about this sculpture

 This is one of the weirdest things I've made. It's sculpted MDF, various woods, acrylic and lacquer. It was quite good fun carving MDF for a change, very different working with a material that's entirely uniform. This was a commission from a friend, which allowed me free reign to experiment with materials.

This was a commission from a friend which allowed me free reign to experiment with materials. I had wanted to carve mdf for a while. Glue multiple mdf boards together and then shape the resulting block.

I guess part of the reason for this is the vast majority of my 3d work has predominately been with wood. As opposed to working with clay or any other malleable material. And i have therefore always had to deal with the grain of which ever wood I was working. The mdf provided a welcome change. I found it to be very easy to work, very forgiving and altogether different from wood.
