Remember Sky Pony I made eons ago. I had intended to make a pedestal for him to rest upon. Yesterday I decided it was high time to accomplish that goal. He has been sitting on the shelf all this time.
At first I thought to use three pieces of wood with undulations on the side sanded smooth and the three doweled together. I still have to figure out how to attach the pony to the wood. I'm thinking I'll make a small depression in the wood for each of the feet and then glue him down. What do you think?
Then I thought I should just use one piece of wood in more of a pyramid shape. Now I'm thinking there is a reason most sculptors use a squared off piece of wood for a pedestal for their sculptures. The focus should be on the sculpture not the wood. So now I think just plain pedestal would be best. I plan to head to an exotic wood purveyor when the weather warms. Hopefully that will be next week.
I'd like to use a wood with a reddish tone which I think will complement the aqua color of the pony. But maybe I should just use a black color for the wood. Black being more of a neutral color. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
