Current sculpting project

I’m currently working this piece of champagne alabaster into a Celtic knot. During the winter months when lockdown closed sculpture class and it was too cold and wet to work outside, I started drawing. I have been exploring Zentangle and line drawing, and this is what has inspired this design.
