new works


finally got around to taking pictures of the 11 wood assemblages i made. more are in the works. the triangles were originally begotten at the bone house build site, scrap pieces of redwood that wasn't good enough to use. cast offs. scrappy bits. since then i have made more of the triangle pieces from larger unwanted pieces of redwood from the same pile. the center is also redwood, slivers and slabs...cut pieces, found pieces. i am loving these and have no desire to stop. nor a clue what i'm doing with them. i've not made them to hang as i find both front and back are wonderful to ponder. the sides, the top and bottom...all of it is rich and feels just right in your hand.

i've linked the picture to my paulaart facebook fan page, which anyone can access i think...unless you aren't even signed up on facebook? at any rate, i'm sure i will post these on my website soon in case you can't view all of them.

i also have two trays that are going up on etsy soon. more editing, snapping of pictures....not tonight.

the places where the different pieces meet and join are the most interesting to me - and the shapes, and well, I like them :)

while I am only able to see a small photo of them, I am intriqued! Size? are these going to be a hand held work? I think I like the idea of something that fits in a hand. To be handled,loved. Changed over time with the natural oils of hands...slow wood if you will...

karen i uploaded to flickr so you can see more. they are about 4-6 from triangle tip to triangle tip and 4 or so inches from middle end to end. and they are to be handled and loved, yes!

I agree, I do want to touch these and hold them-textures are great.
