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!
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.
