Untitled Sculptural Component (Crabhead Doll)

This piece should eventually form part of a larger sculptural work. It's one a many small 'works in progress' that I just lump under the heading of Sculptural Components. With them I'm trying to force myself to work in a different way. Instead of starting with a fixed idea of how the sculpture should look and then trying to physically realise that idea (which is my normal way of working), I'm trying to work in a more organic way, without a rigidly fixed idea of the end result. Hopefully the components themselves will start to dictate the structures necessary for their interaction. I'm also interested in creating new works that can be disassembled and re-assembled in a variety of different ways.
