Pugging clay for the last few days and have now finally finished bagging up 400 kg of clay. This now completes my work on the sculpture. Because the clay was a very light colour I have added some red iron oxide and manganese to the clay to make it a slightly deeper colour.
I am a sculptor, having completed a miniature of the commission that has been installed in 2009.The Miniature is sold as a fundraiser for the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide as a numbered edition.
The Life sized bronze of Blessed Mary MacKillop was erected in Victoria Square, Adelaide on March 22nd 2009.
My new bronze sculpture of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop has been installed in Sydney NSW on October 17th
I have begun selling a Bust of Mary MacKillop in cold cast bronze which is affordable for schools wishing to have a life size bust of Mary.
