SCULPTURE- "Flute Faces"

I just finished a fun little project in collaboration with my talented friend, Amado Espinoza. He asked me to sculpt some faces that he will make molds of, cast them, and then attach the faces to some ceramic flutes that he is making. They are influenced by Aztec designs...another new direction for me to explore! I can't wait to see the finished flutes. They are "special effects" flutes, rather than melodious...creating the sounds of a wild jaguar, or the wind. The face with the headdress at the top was my attempt at a stylized portrait of Amado.
