ED........

A NEW CHALLANGE,

 

LAFFANKI STARTED A LARGE SCULPTURE IN JULY OF 2011

 

( STILL NOT FINISHED ; DUE TO HEART ATTACK IN SEPT 2013 )

 

PROGRESSED WELL :- 90% FINISHED........

  UNTILL HEALTH  DEALT A BLOW !

 

WILL GET BACK ON TO IT WHEN THE WEATHER WARMS UP 

AS MY STUDIO IS A CONVERTED GARAGE &

AS COLD AS HELL IN THE WINTER MONTHS

& IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO WORK.

 
 CREATING MUCH LARGER   SCULPTURES
3/4 TO LIFE SIZE.  AND LARGER .
WITH A DIFFERENT WAY OF MAKING THEM
SO THAT EACH SCULPTURE WILL BE

 THE ORIGINAL   ( & NOT A COPY)
   
LET ME EXPLAIN....
NEARLY ALL SCULPTURES
THAT ARE SOLD ARE NOT THE ORIGINAL ART WORK
AS CREATED BY THE ARTIST ; UNLESS THEY ARE A CARVING
OUT OF STONE OR ANOTHER SOLID MATERIAL , OR
CREATED BY THE HAND OF THE ARTIST...


AND THE ORIGINAL

TO MUST BE THE ONLY ONE ! !


  
WITHOUT ANY OTHER MEANS ;SUCH AS A MOULD
 FROM
WHICH A CASTING IS MADE.....

THAT IS NOT THE  ORIGINAL !

IT IS A MOULDED COPY.

THERE MAYBE ONLY AS FEW AS 3 TO 6 OR 8.
IN HOT CAST METALS.

** BUT WITH COLD CAST BRONZES & OTHER MATERIALS
THERE COULD BE SEVERAL HUNDREDS.....

BUT..... THESE ARE ONLY COPIES ! !

AND ARE A CASTING FROM THE ORIGINAL ;.......

ORIGINALY BY THE HAND OF THE SCULPTOR !

OK BUT LET US STOP FOOLING PEOPLE....
NO MATTER WHAT YOU CALL IT !

A COPY..... IS A COPY...... IS STILL A COPY.

  OK.

 ----------0----------
           
XX- WHAT LAFFANKI WILL CREATE WILL BE


A ONE OFF ORIGINAL .
 
AND STAND ALONE ART WORK
 
     XX  NO MOULDED COPIES OF ANY SORT  WILL BE MADE. XX

XX- THERE  WILL THEREFORE  ONLY EVER BE THE ONE....-XX
 LAFFANKI  WILL CREATE  BY HAND

 ----------0---------
                        
            
               NOW :-  XX- LAFFANKII HAS ALREADY STARTED WORK           

( JULY 2012 ).........ON A NEW

AND MUCH LARGER SCULPTURE OF 3/4 LIFE SIZE 

PROGRESS:-......THIS IS  WORKING OUT AS REQUIRED.
BUT THIS IS A LONG, & HARD LEARNING CURVE !

AND THIS LONG COLD WINTER HAS PUT MY SCULPTURE

WORK ON HOLD ; UNTILL THE WEATHER WARMS UP !

NOW ;- MY  HEALTH HAS  PUT THE LARGE SCULPTURE ON HOLD

UNTILL THE WARMER WEATHER

AS I STILL HAVE AT LEAST 2 WEEKS WORK TO DO.

BUT CAN SOME ONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY ;
IN THE TIME OF ALL THE CUT BACKS TO SAVE MONEY
IT TOOK ; 3 POLICE CARS & A POLICE VAN AND A SPEED CAMERA & 4/5 POLICE !!
TO STOP "THE NUT"..... WHO WAS 2 MPH TO FAST ? ? ?
