Sculpture Shows, May 20th and June 7th

Bring Art into your life- Enjoy wonderful 3 dimensional sculptural work.

On May 20th you have a chance to visit the beautiful sculpture garden at Hawk Ridge Farm for “Embracing Earth”. A number of my pieces are included in the show.  The image below is “Spring Series #1”, a piece that is hammered out of a flat sheet of copper.

I look forward to meeting you at the opening. Or you will enjoy a stroll through the wooded sculpture path at any other time you can make it. More information is below.

Another sculpture show “Power of Place” will open on June 7th in Wells Reserve at Laudholm Wells. I am still working on a piece that will be included in that show. I can’t wait to finish it and have you be able to see and interact with it.

Enjoy the slow coming spring.  Antje

June LaCombe SCULPTURE 

New copper sculpture

It has been fun finishing this copper sculpture “Phoenix”.

The new exploration for me was to figure out how to let the piece rotate in the base.  To achieve this, I carved the base out of cement and inserted tubing and ball bearings.

You can find videos on my FB page.

Now I am creating a larger 5.5 foot version in steel.

New Sculptures

Here are new fold forming sculptures for you to enjoy.

It takes many hours of hammering to shape these forms out of a flat sheet of copper. Knowing how much to stretch the copper in order to get the expected form takes many years of experience.

This one is the latest:

Artisan and open Studio Tour 2014

Come on out and visit the Artisan Tour this weekend.  Here is the Map of all the open studios.  It’s a lot of fun to see what our creative people are up to and what technique they are using.  Take your time and watch demonstrations ask questions and share their enthusiasm. We, Antje Roitzsch and Lori Lacy are showing at the Maine Beehive and we are “L” on the map.
