Gradually taking shape. The figures are roughly engraved and I have an idea of how the figures are going to look. I do not think the figures will end up completely nude but it is a good idea to start that way as after all clothes fit on the figure. Start with the clothes and it is more difficult to make everything convincing!
The Muses were a Greek “invention” but I don’t want to give them out-and-out Greek costume as the notion of inspiration is surely an universal one. A big part of my original concept was to use any drapery as a decorative element, exactly how I don’t know yet but at least now I can start to think about that.The second photo was taken of the back of the bowl.
