Featured Piece - October 2007
Ollie, Stan and Friend (2007)
Ollie: 8 ¼ in. height by 7 ¼ width by 7 ⅞ length
Stan: 8 ¼ in. height by 6 ¼ width
Friend: 6 in. height by 8 ½ width
All pieces are
Oak, sandblasted and bleached.
These trio of pieces is from my Winter Solstice Series of sandblasted and
bleached oak vessels. This grouping is a study in form, with the two
taller vessels in particular. These two share the same height but have different widths.
Although they each make a strong and successful statement separately (Ollie was
the featured piece in August), when placed
together the immediate contrast between the pieces changes the impact of each piece.
Separately Ollie is a stronger piece to me with it's fuller curve and larger and
bolder volume, but side by side the energy and refinement of Stan's vertical
elegance stands out. The third vessel is a shorter, round bottomed vessel
to round out the grouping.
This grouping is not for sale.
