Sculpting, sculpting…

Even though I recently took a year’s sabbatical from making sculpture, it’s gratifying to know that there’s still “an appetite” for my work. Four of my figurative pieces have sold in the past few months — some through the Pulse Gallery (at The Forks, Winnipeg), and some directly to collectors who contacted me here, through my studio. I’m now back in the atelier sculpting away… timely, as the autumn seems to be turning less favourable for “playing outside.”

Sculptures recently sold: ‘Deep Within‘ (which went to Paris); ‘Carrot & Ginger‘; ‘Believe,’ my homage to aviator Amelia Earhart; and ‘Third Time Lucky,’ the metaphoric piece depicting a stressed, myopic lifeguard.


Happy autumn, Everyone!

Well, it’s been a while, but I am back in the studio (after a year of Sabbatical). It feels good!

My studio is sporting a new roof, and I am putting up the storm windows in preparation for what they say will be a cold winter. Wood has been stacked for the stove, and my mind is a clutter of ideas… waiting to be “realized” as figurative sculptures. I am feeling the need for some new “studio buddies,” so let the work begin!

I’m getting back into the feel of clay by shaping a new batch of “Readers,” as most of the previous iterations were adopted by WAVE tour visitors during the summer, and there are folks who want some prior to Christmas. 


Best wishes!

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!
