Psalms 30:11 “You have turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth, and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.”
 
Stephen Covey once said, “We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” For me, this series illustrates both the Psalm and the Covey quote.
 
I said it once, (Mourning to Morning which is currently on the ECVA website) but 18 years later, was impressed to try and say this amazing redemptive song again. Perhaps the idea of process of spiritual development and in the creative act of sculpting is what grabs me.
 
About the process: I sculpted the pieces using water based clay. Then I made the molds painting 8-10 layers of latex. I made castings using hydrostone, and finished the works with paint and gold leaf patina. The molds can also be used for wax models to make bronzes in the “lost wax” process.
