WATERWAY was created for an exhibit at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, Vermont. Poet Daniel Lusk wrote the words on the centerpiece. I chose images recalling history of the lake and cut the panels from an antique piece of steel. The steel, with a bees wax patina, gives the triptych a feeling of an artifact. It measures 3' x 2.5' x 2.5".
The cost is $2500. and includes installation if you live near or within an hour of Burlington, Vermont.
KAPPA 1999 was first shown in the Bansui Gallery in Sendai, Japan. A kappa is a Japanese folk character rumored to live in ponds in the Tono region of northern Japan. The price is $3,500.
Also, I envision this horizontal piece larger, in relation to a building, and the size determined by the site.
Sentinel 1978 is made of concrete and corten weathering steel and measures 8.5' tall x 32" deep x 34" wide. I designed it so rust would color the concrete. The cost is $20,000, not including installation. It would be an elegant addition to a sculpture garden or large building.
Ode to Charlotte 1003 was cut from a single sheet of steel at Queen City Steel's scrap yard in Burlington, Vermont. With a large forklift pulling from one end and a huge bucket loader on the other, we stretched the steel into three dimensions.
The title refers to the bones of a beluga whale found as the first railroad was built in 1849 in Charlotte, Vermont. Ode to Charlotte was part of an inaugural exhibition in 2003 at the new ECHO Science Center in Burlington, Vermont.
The cost is $5,500 delivered near or within an hour of Burlington, Vermont.
Maquettes are models for larger sculptures ready to be commissioned. As I develop ideas I work first with pen and ink, then paper and cardboard and eventually I make small models of sculptures out of steel, maquettes.
ENSO 12' x 12.5' x 20' First in a series of ink and brush inspired circles, ENSO I is available for purchase in this size and in a larger public scale size. Inquiries are welcome.
ByFire 2004; A collaboration with Frank Phillips. We envision this piece in copper, bronze or steel at 8 to 12 feet tall. It could be made from multiple sheets of individually formed and welded 3/16" metal. Each of the three individual "leaves" would have a clear three dimensional presence.
