The process started with imparting my vision to the sculpter. Having proven to myself that my sculpting skills--or lack thereof--weren't up to the task, I sketched the duck in my mind as best I could to give Craig's sculpter insight into my vision.
In my collecting and research for the book I had fallen for the pretty ducks of the 50's and 60's with their subtle detail and coloring. They were nothing short of beautiful. That's the feel I wanted in my duckie. So, I posed several of these ducks and included them with my sketches. I hit "send" and the e-mail sped off into cyber space. What would come back to me I wondered.
