Sometimes when I am pouring and creating my concrete art, a piece here and there comes out and just doesn't work or fit with what I'm creating. I have to make the determination to chuck it or keep that piece. A few weeks ago Lenn and Mike, the owners of Wealthy at Charles, where I sell my art, told me they would like to sell table top fountains and wondered if I could design a few. So as I was working the other day I spotted these concrete pieces and thought some of them would make great parts for exactly that!
These concrete table fountains are great. They make that relaxing sound of water, the cord is hidden, and they are small enough to place anywhere, especially indoors. If you are interested in one of these, email me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
