Sculpture show: Autumn at Hawk Ridge Farm 2016

uprising_at_hawkridge

Some of you might be aware of the sculpture show curated by June LaCombe, Autumn at Hawk Ridge Farm.

Here is the link to images of the sculpture show: Autumn at Hawk Ridge. Please browse through them.  It is not the same as seeing them first hand in nature.  But you will get an idea of the great diversity of sculptural expression.

You can see my sculptures in the company of so many great pieces by about 30 Maine artists.  My sculptures are images # 13, 28 and 81.

Here is a photo I took of “Uprising” on the sculpture path.  This is the first time this piece is installed in the woods.  I always had it in open spaces.  See what you think and let me know.

And as a preview, I am inspired to work on different shapes and forms and created the first model in copper. It also can stand as a smaller sculpture by itself.  Just in case I want to play in a bigger scale, I might leave my bending tools in a different spot for the winter, so they will not be covered by big snowbanks.  Well, it depends on how cold it will get this winter.

Enjoy the turn of the season and keep beauty in your life.

Here are a few views of our new patio.  It was a long process.  It nicely showcases the sculpture “Harmony” out of steel.

I also used steel pipe to drape the Kiwi vine over.  It is a nice shady space in the middle of the day.  The stone bench against the house is a great spot to sit in the morning or evening.

It feels good to have “Uprising” installed!

I would have liked to have company digging the sod and setting the sculpture in, but it went pretty smooth.  I draped a sand bag over the cross section, covered the dirt with plastic and filled in the crushed stone.  On the way home I picked up 2 more buckets to add when I get back to Merryspring, so there is no more plastic showing.

I am curious to see the change when it is rusted
