Bamboo Cot stage 2

Continuing work on my cot, I decided on impulse to bandage and plaster the entire structure. It was stunningly messy, rather time consuming, and painful as hell with all the bending down. I really liked the result though.
I decided to ignore the front wall of the cot. As part of the final display is going to be able light and shadows, the extra wall will just muddy the image. I like the starkness of standing directly in front of the empty cot. The limbs have warped as the bamboo was very fresh, lending a twisted Burtonesque feel to the piece.

Not able to run off to work straight after sculpture classes anymore… home for a shower!
