Live feed of a sculpture this Friday 6/26/09 !

We will holding a live feed of a current sculpting project for a Wildwood NJ client. I think it would be fun to show how we rip into the sculpts and demonstrate some skills. As some of you have already viewed in our production video's and already know that we have fun at what we do, but of course it would certainly be more fun if there were an audience involved and participate in some Q&A.  

So, on Friday June 26th, 3:00 pm eastern time, we are wanting to experiment a little. This will be live and you will have a chance to interact with us at the shop.  

The sculpt project is a multiple component project: An oversized photo op theme for a boardwalk Photo OP center. The project consists of a hugely oversized life guard chair which (the center of attraction) which will be able to fit about 25+ people. An 8' tall sand castle, oversized life preservers, 10' tall surf board a characterized relief sculpted muscle man where you place your head on his body and the piece that I will be sculpting live: a characterized relief sculpted sexy woman, where you place your head in on the body. Together, the project makes for a great photo op as well as being able to use each component separately! I hope that I can spark enough interest in viewership.

To comment during the show, you will need to log onto and open a free account. Once you have done that look for us under GIOCAL, which is me: Giovanni Calabrese

Hope to see you all then!

Thanks, Giovanni

Cristiano Ronaldo's Sculpture Gone Wrong

Cristiano Ronaldo is represented by a bronze bust of his "likeness", and the internets on FIRE! World famous athlete with all the charm and good looks one could ask for..... clearly missed in this bronze replica.   So how in the world does this happen?   When creating a figurative life portrait sculpture, one collects imagery from all angles to replicate in form.  This piece was sculpted in clay first to then cast in bronze.  Clay is the most forgiving and easily adjusted material known to sculptors!  So who approved this facial expression as a correct representation of Cristiano Ronaldo?  Or did the artist not reveal any progress photos as the sculpture came into form?  Was he granted the job just to reveal this final with any updates in between?  The internet has been buzzing with endless memes criticizing the bust , as Cristiano has to grit and bear this permanent representation of himself.  And how did the artist respond to the outrage ?  He com
