Hi, I just found your amazing Pfeiffer Catwoman bust, I actually have an amazing interest in the character and a huge collection. I was wondering if there was any chance at all that I could off to buy the piece off you, or another casting could be made that I could buy? Please - pretty please? I love the pose - everything about it is just - fantastic!!!
Hope to hear from you soon :)
Thanks for your time,
Casey :)

I always had a strong eye for three dimensional works. As a child, I would play with my toys and create additional pieces out of household items such as foil, paint, and cloth. The reason: To make my action figures look more realistic. Sculpture has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and is currently my main focus of study.

Throughout elementary school, I never spent a lot of time working on sculptures. Most of the time we would just draw or paint (not that there is anything wrong with those mediums, they just didnít satisfy me). Once a year I would get the opportunity to play with clay, but the lessons never lasted long enough. Eventually it came to the point where I gave in to the two-dimensional side of art and forgot about sculpture all together.

It wasnít until my junior year of high school that I touched clay again and when I did, I exploded. I stayed in the art department all day. When school was done, I would go home only to stay up all night to work on sculpture. When I did not sculpt, I would be in the aisles of ďToys R UsĒ making mental notes. At that time, it was the closest thing I had to visiting a museum, besides field trips. When graduation came around, I was fortunate enough to win a scholarship to West Liberty State College where I continued my study in sculpture.

My sculptures tend to be studies of the human anatomy. Human anatomy and attention to detail have always been a main focus of mine. Most of my work represents characters from my childhood which brings sentimental memories to me. By creating these characters it gives me peace of mind, good anatomy practice, and a chance for people to take notice of my ability.
All that I require to make a sculpture is a photograph or drawing of the subject matter. I study the picture closely, and then I begin to sculpt. Usually I start with basic shapes of the subject matter. Next, I wait until the clay is close to leather hard. I then go into further detail, such as face and muscular structure. After it is bisque fired, I then apply acrylic paint. I feel that a good paint job enhances the work but being able to capture shadows with shape and form brings the work to life.

Sculpture will always be my passion. Itís in my blood to work three dimensionally and I will continue to do so until the day I canít. So in the meantime, I have work to do.

Thanks,
-Eric Price
