I spent last week trying a new medium (bone), working with mostly new tools (dremel with dental bits, jewellery files and a broken scalpel blade) and at a different scale (tiny). Sculpting by ‘carving out’ rather than building up as I do in wax or clay was definitely a challenge to how I see, think and work. And a challenge to the senses; bone smells very … distinctive.
