Our Throwback Thursday is a little more current, as it was just yesterday the whole studio was working hard on bringing the finishing touches to our Murphy Park Murals. They are being installed this morning, and we hope to have more photos for you next week!
Although these fish look effortless, a LOT of work goes into each one. Each little circle and scale are sculpted and pieced together on the fish. One of our studio artists Jesse, does a lot of this amazing work. He also takes great pictures of his progress, as most of these photos below are his. Follow him on Instagram to see his progress on all our current art. His work is fantastic, and we are very fortunate to have him here helping us out! If you would like to support his steel artwork, please follow him on Facebook at One of a Kind Fabrication.
...Time I started writing down some of the adventures we are having in the studio. Seems to me there is always something going on here that could be of interest to you, my lovely readers and patrons, and this is where you’ll find it. I can’t promise a new blog every week - I have art to make after all - but I will put something down regularly, and I invite you to comment, or ask questions, or even come by the studio if you are passing and do it in person.
The creation of this blog is part of a total re-vamp of my website, and that was initiated when we came up for air after an explosion of activity in the studio over the summer. So what were we doing? Locally King’s Beach, CA invited us to show at their art walk DeTours, and we made four beautiful fish that can be seen swimming past Plumas Bank until the end of September.
The giant daffodil sculpture for Burning Man took up a lot of time, and figuring out how we were going to transport this 9,000 pound sculpture was also quite a challenge, but the art and the crew survived unscathed, and the awesome feedback we received made the whole adventure totally worthwhile. I already have a super cool idea for next year’s Burning Man piece, so watch this space, and be prepared to be amazed!
