Keeper of the Vineyard (Clay Sketch)

This sculpture is a good example of the different creative methods. In this piece, I did not set out to make a man carrying a tree, instead I started by pushing the clay around to see what it would say. My only idea was to have a smaller base and larger top to give it a light feeling.  After a while I could see a tree and a man carrying it. The sculpture of the “Keeper of the Vineyard” was born!
