New Line of Work

I have spent the evening bubble wrapping a new line of sculpture which will be sent to Florida Craftsmen Gallery tomorrow. As you may remember, the last body of work totally sold out during the summer. This piece is called comfort. It is made of clay and was fired multiple times with oxides, glazes, underglazes and slips. There are two drawers in the box portion: his and hers. I like the message written on the larger bird/persons chest. It says "Love is the greatest protection".

And you may notice an improvement of photographic quality from my earlier sculpture. I got a photo tent for my birthday and I absolutely love it. If you are an artist or want to sell things on e-bay, check them out. For these shots I just sat the tent out in bright sunlight and that was it.

Exhibition at Present Global Gallery

It has been a whir since we arrived home from our summer vacation. Just so we didn't forget we were in Florida, good old mother nature threw Tropical Storm Fay at us just as soon as we got home. The latest satellite images of the Atlantic look like a conga line of hurricanes. Hey, but at least we are warm.

I have been sculpting like a maniac since we arrived home. I have a show this Saturday night at Present Global Gallery in West Palm Beach. If you are in the area stop by an accept my invitation to oggle and ohh and ahh my artwork. The image that accompanies this entry is called Be Kind and it is ceramic and measures about 13" high and it is included in the show at Present Global. Hope you enjoy the work.
