Local emergency physician, Janet Jordan MD, has been sculpting for 13 years. She has taken her knowledge in anatomy and kinesiology to a different place, finding herself in the art world. Her presentation will discuss the process of sculpting in oil-based clay, from conception to foundry. She will present her pictorial path starting with a creative idea, constructing a wire armature, securing the piece to a sturdy base, deciding on an expressive pose, sculpting and readying the piece for the foundry. Hands-on examples of each step will be provided along with display of several of her completed pieces.
Her collection of muses entitled “Whimsy”, is both joyful and thoughtful, while metaphorically expressing life’s challenging lessons. “Unconditional”, her new collection of animals depicts the bond between parent and child, across the species.
Several of her bronzes will be displayed in the art museum community room, along with clay works-in-progress, silicone molds and wax reproductions. Please see Dr. Janet’s Website: https://www.janetjordansculpture.com/about-the-artist Please join us!
