When Pigs Fly




1 September 2016

When Pigs Fly is a new sculptural commission I have just completed. Five hand-built winged pigs (in a burnished metallic-silver cold finish) erupt upwards from a tiered, turned wooden base with metal findings. Each pig featues a “piggy-bank” coin slot on its back. Interpretation is open to the viewer…

“Sometimes, it’s really just a matter of getting started.
‘Slow and steady’ has its well-earned place,
but without the motivation to start,
you’re not even in the race.”

Work in progress…

Winter weather provides a great motivation to work in the comfort of my wood-heated studio… half a dozen sculptures underway or completed since New Year’s day!

To what end?

“Too often, we hear from others that we are incapable of, or unsuited for, things we haven’t done before. In the absence of external motivation, we are left to draw on inner resources to achieve the unexpected.
You go, Girl!”

Studio time…



14 February 2015

Cold winter days help drive me to the studio. Thanks to my trusty wood stove, indoor conditions are pleasant even when the wind and blowing snow are howling outdoors…

A variety of new sculptures are completed or in the works (several pieces will be unveiled at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Friday, 20 March 2015 — further details to follow).
