Thor

 

Thor is the Norse god of thunder, storms, oak trees, strength, and protector of mankind. The beloved Thor carries the great hammer Mjolnir, and is traditionally depicted with red hair and beard (unlike his blond counterpart in Marvel Comics). There are countless legends and heroic poems about Thor throughout the Nordic and Germanic cultures. In fact Thursday was named after "Thor's Day." In sculpting Thor, I was inspired by a superhero pose on a movie poster but took a minimalistic, Rodin-like impressionistic approach to conveying just his core essence: the iconic winged helmet, Mjolnir with the runic triquetra, and his imposing physique. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
