Torso Sculptures

I have always enjoyed creating these torso sculptures throughout the years.  I have tried many different styles, color combinations, and firing techniques.  Most the torso have a full figure or even imperfections as I believe in representing a more traditional and realistic depiction of women as opposed to an "idealized" beauty.  I use line to accentuate the curves and move the eye throughout the sculpture. Posture is important in implying movement and life within the piece.
