MBALI: Like a flower

Portrait exploration and mask design (project ongoing)


Step 1 - portrait or birth


Mbali's hair journey:



Next steps:

  • synthesize ideas for the mask making phase

  • digitize 3D sketch (I call the sculptures I do in modelling clay 3D sketching because I’m better at sculpting than drawing... I find sculpting way more fun... and I hope to gradually ease you into the realization that this sculpture will eventually be destroyed) 😶

  • prepare the papier-mâché pulp for sculpting the mask
