Novelist - plaster bust

Introducing 'Novelist' which is the third bust I've made incorporating books.  There can't be many objects which are more familiar to everyone than books but I'm guessing for most people it's the ideas inside them which are of most interest.

But books also have very strong sculptural and three-dimensional qualities which  I've found interesting to explore.  Open, closed, right way up, wrong way up, stacked or single, they adopt  many different shapes and the paper pages introduce elements of texture and pattern juxtaposed with the solidity of hard covers and spines.

This is Librarian - she'd have made a good debutante with all that book balancing.....

I definitely haven't given up with books - I'm sure I'll get some more ideas.

By the way, I seem to be a bit slow at updating my blog these days as I'm quite addicted to Instagram which is where I'm posting studio updates and various visual stuff which inspires me.
