Formless Spawn #4

This is the fourth in a series of Formless Spawn sculptures from around 2007.  Formless Spawn are Cthulhu Mythos entities from the writing of Clark Ashton Smith.











Formless Spawn #3

This is the third in a series of Formless Spawn from around 2007.  It's meant to depict one of the servitors of the Old One Tsathoggua.  It's chipped in several places and may have been damaged in the great moving disaster of 2010.











Formless Spawn #1

This is the first in a series of sculptures of Formless Spawn, servitors of the Old One Tsathoggua.  This one is from 2004 or 2005.  It's not hollow so it's only by good fortune or good wedging that it made it through the bisque kiln without exploding.

Formless Spawn #2

This is old work from about 2007.  I made a series of sculptures representing Formless Spawn, an entity from the Cthulhu Mythos, although not one invented by Lovecraft.  The Formless Spawn were invented by Clark Ashton Smith.  They were designated as the servitors of the Old One Tsathoggua.

I posted about them a few years ago, but I'm listing one of them on Etsy and I wanted to update the photography.

Purple Worm 4 WIP

Finished Purple Worm #4 sculpture

I have a commission to make a purple worm sculpture.  I'm not entirely happy with the first one, so I made another one.  I don't know if I like this one yet.

Purple Worm Commission WIP

Finished Purple Worm #3 sculpture

I made a few Purple Worm sculptures a few years ago and sold this one, named Roger, on Etsy.  The Purple Worm is a classic Dungeons & Dragons monster.  I got a commission to clone Roger.  I don't know if I succeeded in creating an exact replica, but it's another monstrous larva with a big mouth and a lot of teeth.

The mottled gold effect was obtained by adding a layer of reddish brown glaze over a white glaze.
