Cyclops Revisited


The Cyclops Skulls created in 2007 sort of got the “short end of the stick” when it comes to making public appearances. They were only displayed for a couple of days in 2007 then packed away never to be seen again.

When I teach workshops or give talks on papier mache I always show an assortment of different pieces but always fail to include the Cyclops. I like the Cyclops, I think they are different and original but for some reason they get neglected sitting all alone on a shelf in our garage.

Several folks have requested more information on the templates used to create these guys, so here are a few construction photos showing the simple cardboard shape that served as the guide for the final form. The Cyclops were created “on the fly” without a definite vision, sort of tribute to doing whatever feels right at the time.

Anyway, here's a little more face time for the Cyclops:
