lion gargoyle has a new home

Incredibly, the Lion Gargoyle has found a new home. He left me today for life with a fabulous family who live in the wilds of Phoenixville. I find it very fitting that gargoyles live in Phoenixville.
Thank you, Jean and Michael!

unlikely gargoyles – a squirrel in time for spring

Finishing a sculpture is more than a good feeling. It’s kind of like the day after you give birth and you have to keep staring at the results. And sometimes poking the baby to make sure s/he’s still breathing.

With sculpture, you have to know when to stop poking it. With kids, you can continue to poke them till they start poking you back.

anyway…

I think this one might just be done.

patinas-a-go-go

So things get away from me sometimes and tend to bunch up. Which means I now have a rather large group of sculptures waiting to be finished. They’re all fired, some have the start of patinas, others are bare and probably embarrassed to be photographed.

The poor gnome on the left has been waiting for almost two years for attention, and the abstract forms may be plotting rebellion. But the lion, even though youngest of the group, is just about done. The other gargoyle will be next in line as there is a show being planned featuring gargoyles, so he must be ready.

Sorry, gnome.


Havana cat gargoyle

This little gargoyle sculpture was commissioned by a friend who raises Havana cats, which are these amazingly lean, long-legged cats with rich brown coats and striking green eyes. I hope I did them justice.
