It's official - It's Spring!

...and about time, too.

I finished this sculpture, made a base and moved it out of the studio this week.

It is called "Nexus" and I've been working on this piece (sporadically) for over a year (but always in freezing weather).

It measures 73" high by 36" wide by 36" deep and weighs approximately 3,000 lbs. It is carved from Indiana Limestone, using a spiralling chisel texture on the intertwining forms and polished surfaces on the base and geometric elements in the sculpture.

It represents the like-minded interest of a community (such as a group of artists or friends - same thing, in my case) and the energy that brings and holds them together.

The Daffodills are the first flowers on the scene. This one managed to muzzle itself. (photo Meg White)

The tender new growth of Rose, as it pushes through last years briars, has a lot of sculptural interest. (photo Meg White)

Bloodroot emerges....

...and makes its move!
