I love the front of this piece, I love the back of this piece I even love the disembodied leg. But, I do not love them together. Fortunately, because I use paper clay, I can literally take a hammer to it and break the 2 halves apart. I think the leg will become part of a front-facing wall-hung piece and the back side will have a life of it's own as well. My new building method (more about this later) has brought me as many question as it has answers.

After you make the art, show the art, sell the art....now you gotta ship it. I recently have been learning a great deal about how to protect and ship my work. For my money nothing protects the surface of the piece like memory foam. I wrap strategic areas before boxing it with bubble wrap. Then this goes inside a second box. Ideally this outer box is just large enough to allow for 2 inch thick pieces of styrofoam all around. Fed X with 3rd party insurance is a good idea. I have used www.shippinginsured.com
