"Trundle" 2010 New Figure....

Many of my pieces, especially my Figures, deal with the idea of the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. This piece is no exception. I love his optimism- he has a sense that “nothing is going to slow me down”. This piece is SOLD.

His wrench rests on his shoulder. I took a while to figure out the angles to make this happen.

His back, showing the hand stitching.

His carved wooden hands. I carved the hands separately and added them to the arms using glue and a bit of brass rod.

His body pre-paint and pre-assembly. The wheel is an antique pulley, I added a "tire" made from an old electrical cord. His head, sculpted from polymer clay, was painted when I painted the previous figure's head.

The box I used for the base was found at a flea market in Maryland, or was it Delaware?
