Logo design for architect and artist, John McRae. John specializes in raku sculptures of female torsos, but also enjoys creating mermaids, animals, and other unique sculptures. It is my understanding that Raku is the process of lead-glazed sculpting that originated in Japan and is known for a unique and irregularity of shapes.
This was the absolute most fun logo to work on! It also was the most difficult trying to create an anatomically correct and still beautiful female torso in the graphic world. I realized I could never sculpt anything remotely close to a human torso and I have the upmost respect for John and all artists. I wanted the logo to have dimension, artistic texture, a soft flow, and graceful movements. John's company name, McRae Clae needed a masculine yet soft layer that accompanied the architecture style of John's other career, a professor of architecture at the University of Tennessee.
John's work has been displayed all over the country and often finds a special nook in Diana Warner stores in New York City. Check out his work on his facebook page: John Malcolm McRae
