St. Michael Shrine

This project is currently in the clay modeling phase. The 30″ tall relief sculpture (finished material being either terra cotta, a cast medium, or stone) will sit on the facade pilaster of a gothic revival, urban church building in Washington, DC.

Concept drawing for the shrine.
Nearly there… still need clean up and some details and lettering.
Developing the form in more detail and roundness.
Rough in of Big Shapes
Status as of beginning of January: The oval shaped in clay – 31″x20″x3″ and ready to be carved into.
Clay added to board.
The blank oval. Next, I’ll screw some screws into the board and wind wire between them to hold the clay in place when it is added.
Drawing a template for the oval shape of the shrine. The screws are the foci of the oval, and the wire is used for drawing the outline.
