I'm definitely feeling as though it's Fireball season! These concrete fireballs are going so fast I have to designate about twelve to fifteen hours a week making these. I offer them in quite a few different shapes with many options for natural or colored stone or gems. Did you know you can also order them? I'll be putting out an order form soon to help you with that. If you are interested in ordering, just email me and I'll be happy to give you all the information! You can also "comment" those questions below by clicking the comment button. If you live on the east side of Grand Rapids, Wealthy at Charles has a nice selection of my Fireballs and a few of my other art items also.
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
