If you have found your way to my Etsy store you will already have seen my new series of sculptural lamps. Here’s a mini gallery of them…
An Artist’s Life
I’m excited to announce that my Etsy store is back up and running. It will feature functional artworks like my new lamps and forthcoming furniture. I’ve named this new, parallel direction of my work “Dark Age Design.” Some people may ask “Why Dark Age Design? Didn’t we leave the Dark Ages behind in our quest […]
Eventually I will get around to a full report about my trip to South Korea for the The 21st International Sculpture Symposium Icheon (ISSI). I did post images on facebook while I was there if you’d like to scroll through and experience it via time travel. In the meantime I will just say that it […]
The summer started off on a high note when I installed my sculpture Triple Spark at the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts. I’d never been to the museum before and was delighted to find a beautiful landscape filled with wonderful works. My piece is on long-term loan, with hopes that one day it will join […]
Winter is coming… you can smell it in the frost of the sunrise.
This is a great image of Nighthawk in its permanent home, taken by the owner. I love it when my work finds a great home.
Still rather disgruntled (to put it mildly) after the theft of a sculpture two weekend back, I decided I would spend the last several days moving heavy rocks around to burn up some energy. The terraced walls are all dry-stacked stone collected on the property. Eventually, I’ll continue all the way around the side of […]
I just got back from the Uptown Art Fair this weekend in Minneapolis where, along with several other artists, I had a work stolen from my booth on Saturday night/Sunday morning. I guess it could have been worse, another sculptor had four pieces stolen, but it’s still a punch in the gut. (This was within […]
If I try really hard, I can recall this vague feeling from when I was younger… Almost obsessively, I would ruminate on what it must feel like to be truly excellent at something. Imagine you are Michelangelo or Michael Jordan, it doesn’t particularly matter. But what does matter is that you are at the pinnacle […]
I finally finished this new large piece, temporarily titled Helios Rising. I need to live with it for a while to see what I really think, but I’d say I’m happy with it. One of my common “themes” is melding organic with geometric forms into a singular whole. Here I was going for something related, […]
I’ve been back for a week and a half or so now but I’ve been consumed by planting trees. I have approximately 800 in the ground with only 100 or so to go. A full update on that project, along with drawings and images of the broad landscape design, will come later. Right now it’s […]
Spring is definitely on its way. Even though it was an unnervingly mild winter, it’s still a pleasure to see the landscape awaken from dormancy. I just thought I’d share a couple pictures as a nice diversion from the incessant grinding/digging. My Nanking Bush Cherries are getting their first blooms. One of my Scout Apricot […]
I picked Seed up the other day from the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour in Mankato, MN. It was on exhibit there for one year and took home Best in Show. Nice to have it back home again. It reminds me of a short meditation I wrote a while back which I don’t believe I’ve shared […]
And I was making such good progress… Started a new sculpture a couple days ago and it was really coming together. After overcoming the initial resistance of beginning (which never goes away, no matter how many pieces I’ve completed) I was finding my way with no more than the usual fits and starts. Some things […]
