This month’s 3D Shop Talk episode, “Models, Monuments and Marine Denizens” features sculptors Randy Hand, Mark Newman and my partner in creativity, Colin Poole. The full video chat as well as images and contact information for the artists featured can be found towards the end of this article.
It has been such a treat to once again be able to gather with fellow sculptors and talk about the things we’re most passionate about. We’ve found these chats inspiring, illuminating and a soothing pause in our amped up world.
As artists, we are all uniquely positioned to communicate at a visceral level. This opens the door for us to powerfully “speak to” challenging topics, with the potential of compassionately bringing diverse mind sets together. In times like these we’re living through, we are also in the position to provide respite for weary hearts and serve as mnemonic beacons for love and beauty. We hope that in the face of our videography learning curves, you are able to laugh a little with us, learn a little with us and have a few moments rest for your creative spirit.
In this month’s episode, among other topics, we chatted about working with models, making monumental sculpture and somehow…creatures of the sea kept coming up. The topic of working with models in sculpting is an enormous one, so I’ll be dedicating next month’s post to some tips and ideas about how we work effectively with our models in our studio.
Until next time, keep creating!

Lovely to see some 3D artwork in Muddy colors as well. Great work
Thanks Christof – it’s been such fun getting to share some sculptural topics here!
Okay, I don’t think this was really nice of you. I have one of Colin’s small dragon skulls pictured in a circle (council? feeding?). I was quite happy with it.
Now I want a circle of them for my wall.
Ha ha!! Yeah, I know what you mean. Everytime he arranges the dragons in a circle like that, I start thinking I need a dragon circle too. I love how they look that way!
