As a sculptor, one of my biggest pleasures and challenges is to create work with surprising vantage points for the viewer. I want to pull the viewer around the work via this element of surprise. This was a teaching I learned from Henry Moore many years ago in school. #henrymooreteaching.
Often when we view sculpture we tend to look at it flatly, like a painting, from one view. I am nudging you to rethink this, get more bang for your buck and move around the work and see it from different vantage points through the eyes of the maker. You will get more from the looking... and please know that somewhere in the world, for taking these extra steps - a sculptor is thanking you. 😊
This was me this afternoon on the last stretch of finishing the 30 some pieces of jewelry that are now in the kiln- the final firing before Christmas! It has been an intense, exhilarating, and motivational holiday season and I’m grateful to all who have supported me by purchasing from your local jeweler gal, cheering me on, and generally being rad. Super special heartfelt thanks to my love, Marco, and the kids for supporting me through four weeks of working 7 days a week.
Join me for the last holiday hurrah this Saturday in Montpelier... that’s right! I’m expanding my horizons and going to sell in the state capital at Touch of Vermont Holiday Gift Fair, named best holiday market in Vermont by Food and Wine Magazine. I’ll be back in my local nook on Sunday for my final Putney Winter Market at Green Mountain Orchards. ✌🏽❤️ PS yes, those are maracas and shakers you see on my workbench. You never know when you need a good dance party ... or a drying form for domed earrings.
