More examples can be found in the sculpture gallery
Sculpture and modelling are an important part of Seahorses Art Studios offering to both course participants and to customers who wish to either commission a work or to purchase a piece which has been newly completed. The photos on this page show a mixture of some previous work and pieces currently for sale. Boris works in plaster, stone, wood and rendered 'insulation block'. Also shown in the sculpture section are some examples of papier-mâché work, which is a popular activity in the Studio, and products from our driftwood workshop which can be ordered/commissioned directly from us.
Modelling and Casting a Greek Head
This was a recent project involving the second year Eurthmy students at Botton Village Camphill Community. One of our tasks, whilst studying together the Ancient Greek culture and consciousness, was to model a profile relief in clay. The next step involved learning how to cast in plaster first a negative and then a postive. This practical project ran parallel to the daily study and was a good balance to the more cerebral activity. The week-long block course was followed up later with a visit by the group to the British Museum to observe the actual Parthenon sculptures.

Re-cycled driftwood birds & fish
This is an on-going project which we do for a local Gallery at Yarmouth. Driftwood is collected at the high-water mark, especially after gales, and transformed into birds (waders, gulls and terns) and fishes (mainly mackerel). The work is done at Seahorses Art Studio with the help of Richard and Anne (both of whom have learning disabilities).
Locals, who use the Studio, also bring in material, so we are very rarely short of driftwood! Last season we couldn't keep up with demand from the gallery, so in 2010 we intend to build up a stock in the winter months so this doesn't happen again.
All proceeds go towards helping with the Art Studio costs.
