DRIFTWOOD SCULPTURES

fish-1

My husband has this vacant office that he is stuck in a lease with, until May.  It’s loaded with computer equipment for his business, but other than that, it is HUGE, well lit and warm. I’ve been the artist squatting in residence for some time now.

I mention this because I am sure all his techie computer guys are just thrilled.  The past three weeks they have heard BANG, BANG, BANG from my hammer.  Then there’s the saw dust flying from my saws and to top it off the smell of burning wood from my drills.  Sowwy guys I SWEAR, IT’S IN THE NAME OF ART!  ;)

The above fish are quite large.  They range from 3-4 feet.

I’m also working on these wall hangings, shadow boxes and sculptures.  Each of them are still incomplete.  I am going to add pottery elements to each of them to make them more personal.

It feels good to finally put a dent in that driftwood collection! I’m feeling organized and off to a good start.

 

 

Getting Limber with Timber

I live by the beach.

That means I beachcomb!

But beachcombing can add up if you don’t find ways to use it.

After Hurricane Sandy I made myself a 5 foot mirror. But let me tell you, that wasn’t even half of what I collected!

So it’s time to put all this driftwood to good use.

Strewn all over the floor, I can begin to look for shapes in the abyss.

I shall record the progress… not getting much done today though! :)
