Iceland AiR support

So, I am in Brooklyn.
I totally forgot about these antlers I purchased back in … December/November? And had shipped to Clare’s. Anyways, here they are! antlers They’re really nice! Old. Two points are missing, but nice just the same. My plan was/is to use them in photo shoots and make moulds off of the antlers, or at least some of the antlers.
antlered Not a bad eBay purchase.
Before leaving Toronto I smoke fired some of my slip cast bones and a Pupa form. This time I smoke-fired using excelsior as a combustable – total oxidation happened.

Tomorrow a package is suppose to arrive (fingers crossed!) that contains the left shoe/chopine, wax positive and the cast right Chopine- I’ve booked time at Urban Glass in order to cast the wax and cold-work the finished Chopines. Tomorrow I am heading up to Mamaroneck, New York to pick up plaster silica then a quick dash to Compleat Sculptor in Manhattan!
