Last week, the Outdoor Sculpture Show at Yew Dell Gardens ended. We headed for Crestwood, Kentucky to deliver a sculpture that we had sold in the show (one of the very rare pieces that Meg and I have worked on together) and to bring back unsold pieces.
On the way up, Meg's crane truck developed a serious leak in a brake line. Normally, we don't post to the world when things go wrong; everything is "a bowl of cherries" and "a bed of roses" here at Lawler-White Sculpture Studios. However, I'm wanting to give a 'plug' for Gomer's Automotive near Brandenburg, KY who fixed the truck on the spot and got us back on the road.
Great service for a fair price!
We loaded up the stone "Seraph" and fastened her down with this cargo net before heading to her destination.
(kind of a strange image...)
This is the fully installed sculpture at a private residence near Lagrange, KY.
This is an alternate view.
We had some new "wildlife" show up at the studio: 2 potbelly pigs. When it looked like they were moving in to stay, I called the folks at Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary to see if they could help us relocate them. The pigs took off before anyone showed up and I haven't seen them since.
One of the men from Broadbent who came out in response to my call was Abby Peterson. I gave him a hand full of plasticene when he mentioned that he had an interest in creating sculpture. He made this model for an eagle sculpture.
Then, he made this wood sculpture, using the clay as a pattern. Wood sculpting is something that he's been doing for a while. He has a booth over at Peddler's Mall in Elizabethtown, KY where he is successfully selling his wood creations. We plan to check it out next time we're over in E-town.
