It came out very good! I remember it was not fired yet. Maybe in November or ...
It's a great idea about the base of box is filled with different colored clay spheres.
I love it!

Thanks, Monday or Tuesday I have to drop off five sculptures and wall hangings for the show.

Wow, that's going to be some show!

The head is beautiful, & the multicolored spheres make me think of multiple skin colors joining to create a whole, & also of voting (as the Greeks did with pebbles). Really intriguing work! I'd love to see all the pieces.

wonderful. The eyes are amazing. He looks like he's going to move at any minute. I remember seeing zuniga sculptures in a garden in mexico and feeling like they might move at any minute. You've seemed to have caught that same internal movement in the eyes and forehead.

btw, thanks for the lovely sentiment re: "clandestine beauty of the butterfly"

That works for me !! lol

Cheers,

thanks curious art and l. a. stern for your nice comments, i can only hope that the folks in this little (conservative) city like them.

What a wonderful piece - do you like Gerald Scarfe's work?

joseph's art and stuff said...

ArtSparker, love his work, I had to look him up. As soon as I opened his site I was familiar with his work from "The Wall" and some other things. I had never seen his sculptures... love them! Thanks for asking, it made me revisit art that I love.

This is the most fantastic stylized Abe Lincoln head I have ever seen. And lets be honest, there are a lot of Abe Lincoln heads out there. Nice job Joseph!!
