ARTIFACTS / TOTEMS

It takes both being the Fool and being brave to present sticks of wood as art — given they were created by nature, not me.

But alas, I do love them and work with them -- sanding and saturating with beeswax and encaustic.

They are artifacts — a simple object (as a tool or ornament) showing human workmanship or modification; a product of artistic endeavor.

SCULPTURES 2013 - 2014

A delight of living in a temperate climate is the four seasons — they are each so different that their effect on the mind/body/spirit is noticeable.  So it follows that ones inspiration for art will manifest anew....Spring brought with it the new idea for the wood sculptures — wooden vessels holding wood. It started with the piece shown here...and it circles back to cairns and mexican frame assemblages! (the last time I worked with mexican frames was 1996 when Brian Hurley and I went to San Miguel).

NOTE: all the wood pieces are saturated with pure beeswax and encaustic.
