SCULPTURE

 

                    Hand sculpture  'Prarie House'

Sculpture happens in a random way - usually when I have some idea I want to explore.  I often have it pretty completely worked out in my mind and need the energy of a normal pottery making work cycle to bring it to physical reality.

Two groups seem consistent:

Narrative sculptures-  sometimes with alter-ego bubble as a protagonist.  A series of seven are referred to as "Bubble and the Box" - following from entrapment to liberation.

Abstract hand sculpture- made to be turned in the hands and seen from many viewpoints.

Botanicals - sometimes inspired by living plants and sometimes (so far) by the photography of a botanist named Blosfeldt who worked in the 1920's;  His studies of new leaves, seeds and flowers were made at times using a microscope.

Remember! Commissions and special projects are welcome!
