I have this customer that stops by fairly frequently. She sometimes apologizes for coming often. She's a loyal customer that loves to check out my newest concrete art. I just love that...no apologies needed! I'm not sure if it was late spring or early summer when she stopped over and brought me two of these heavy metal stands. She asked me of Iwould make something out of concrete just for them. Of course I said I would, but I told her she needed to be patient. I didn't have an instant idea as I usually do, so I needed them to just sit around and live with them. As the summer went on I would spot them often and I have to admit being a bit frustrated that no ideas were coming to me. Finally, as I was making and pouring my hand poured bowls, I thought, how perfect it would be to set a different size in each one. It worked! Here they are including a large one that sits directly on the table to off set the other two on their stands.
Do you have something laying around that would work great with one of my concrete art pieces? Or would you like me to make something specific for your space or table? My ideas are endless and I would love to make that happen for you! Please email me if you are interested.

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.
