This sculpture is Ade fro soapstone, walnut and steel. I really lie the forward ovens of the walnut. I thought it gave the hawk the look of movement. This piece is my first international sculpture. It was purchased and now resides in Mexico.
Even though I am color blind, I can see blue. It is my favorite color. It is logical then that Italian Blue Ice Alabaster is my favorite stone. It has a little transparency to it, not as much as white but it still glows. I also like this piece because of how simple the shape is.
Angel Fish is carved fro Translucent orange alabaster and is hunted to a lacquered wood base. This piece is one of y latest pieces where I am working on thinning out the stone, almost to the breaking point.
"Peace Lilly" is carved from Indiana Limestone and can be an indoor or outdoor sculpture. It started its life being titled "Vortex". However, as I moved forward with the piece, that name just did not fit. Once the general shape emerged, it reminded me much more of a flower. As I looked at photos, there was one of a folded over peace lilly that really struck me. Thus the name. It is 29.5 x 19.5 x 12.75.
This Indiana Limestone sculpture is my first stone torso. I am pleased with the results. My next attempt is a just less than life size figure in Botticino Marble. It will be a full figure.
"Yin and Yang Go Fishing" is carved from Portuguese marble and mounted on a Stainless Steel and Lacquered hard wood base.
"Hurricane's Eye" is carved from dendritic soapstone. The swirl around the center "eye" of the sculpture that is a natural pattern, reminds me of the images or a hurricane you see from space. It is mounted on a lacquered wood base and is an indoor only sculpture.
"Colorado Hillside Road" is an 8" x 8" x 14" contemporary alabaster sculpture. It was named by a visitor to a booth I had at an art fair. She said it reminded her of a road going up the side of a mountain. Given that it is also a carved from Colorado alabaster, I thought it was the perfect name.
"Tempest" is carved from Indiana Limestone with a stain and gloss sealer applied. This piece is mounted to a lacquered wood base. It is for indoor only.
"Running Free" is a horse head sculpture carved from Black Pearl Soapstone from Virginia on an Indiana Limestone base. This sculpture is 20" x 8" x 13"
"Tall Ship" is carved from translucent White alabaster. I carved this piece very thin to take advantage of the translucent material. The thrust forward reminded me of the racing sail boats you see with their big bellowing sails out front of the boat. This piece is mounted to a lacquered wood base. It is for indoor only.
"Maime" was a commissioned sculpture carved from translucent white alabaster. She is mounted to a lacquered maple base.
