Clayburn Moore has to be one of the most talented artist for sculpting the human form that I have ever seen. The level of detail, the shape and the accuracy of the individual muscles are truly amazing. As impressive as Clay’s sculptures are of the male form, it is probably his sculptures of the female physique that really grabs my attention. I personally find that sculpting females is a lot harder than sculpting males. It may be that I’m just more familiar with the male physique or that I have a lot more experience sculpting the male form. It’s a common issue with a lot of sculptors and one that I just have to continue working at to improve.
However Clayburn Moore is unique in that he is capable of masterfully sculpting both the male and female forms. I do not know if he finds one form more difficult to sculpt than the other but his end results are truly amazing. Oh, and before I forget to mention it a lot of Clay’s detailed and impressive sculptures are created in polymer clay. Living proof that it is possible to sculpt highly detailed and complex sculptures in polymer clay.For those of you that are not familiar with Clay Moore, you can see some of his work on his website http://www.csmoorestudio.com.
