TEMPLAR

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2018

Another of the “Hooded Figures”, TEMPLAR is one of the most detailed and representational ones so far, specifically referencing the Knights Templar of the 11th to 14th centuries, and equipped with helmet, chain mail, spear, sword and shield. Hand built and raku fired paper clay on a hand cut MDF base, TEMPLAR is 7 ½” x 5” x 4”

Morning Rose, a photograph taken with an Olympus SP-500UZ, 6 mega pixel  digital slr camera on a September morning in Hillsville, Virginia, is part of my “Southern Exposure” series and represents one of my first steps away from silver gelatin, black and white film I developed myself, as in my “Still Life in the City” and “From the Garden Path” series towards a body of digital, in color, work. Matted and framed to 12′ x 12″.
