Why call this an "Andrea" pot? Because Andrea sent me an idea and this is what came from that idea, and she is my niece. She's quite creative herself and has her definite sense of style and design. It's always fun to see what colors, textures and designs she puts together.
I love it when people give me their ideas. I don't always use them, because it has to fit into my style too. This one was great because I was able to do a little gardening (which I love to do once in a while). By filling this pot with a small evergreen shrub trimmed up and some natural greens from my garden this pot will take you into the fall season. Maybe even through the winter if brought into your porch or a protected area.
Today I'll finish a new concrete table top fountain and a few more bowls. I'll be putting together a new form for a new larger concrete indoor/outdoor fountain also. This bowl and my other concrete art pieces will be making their way to Wealthy at Charles soon! If you ever want more information on these pieces, please email me. Thank you!
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
