Fun with simple shapes and the joy they bring!

In search of inspiration, I decided to go back to basics and create a set of play “blocks” for myself (and anyone else who wants to play). I chose to make sets of concentric (and somewhat eccentric :-D) ovals, squares and triangles. So far I’ve got the ovals done and have been thoroughly enjoying messing with them - lots of balancing going on, very zen!

I’m going to cut the squares & triangles next. we’ll see where their eccentricities wind up and how that plays into building with them.

Ah, the simple things!

Have a well-balanced day!

Thank you for great feedback!!

I’ve received some valuable feedback an artist group I’m in, Women Contemporary Artists (here in Sarasota - check em out!), and I’m thrilled!! We had a critique that allowed me to get these new pieces in front of other creative folk and have some dialog about some of my questions & concerns. 

Was very happy with general response, lets me know I’m on the right track. One comment was that these would be awesome in grand scale, I agree!! 

Looking forward to starting the larger piece I now have a cypress knee to base it in.

Bases, Bases, Bases!

Happy New Year!! Here’s to a fresh start!

These past holidays have been a time for reflection and evolution. The events of last year knocked me sideways and the work that has been flowing out of me is very different. I am pursuing a looser approach to communicating visually and hope you all enjoy it!

I always welcome comments and questions on both content and materials, so do reach out, I’m very responsive :-D

Busy days in the studio!

Here’s the fruits of this past week’s labor. All kinds of fun pieces that now need surface treatments. Some will be coated with metal and patinas and some will be painted. Art, like life, is an adventure!!

Check back to see how they turn out!

Spiral #2 Finished!!

17” diameter x 26” tall on pecky Cypress base

I am having so much fun carving space this way! I’m going to start using aluminum rods based directly in wood and see how that works. 

Also playing with other shapes, like fun splashes below - pencil is there for scale :-D
