About The Artwork

Not wanting to make a one-sided 3-dimensional work of art, the Lips Series changed as I thought more and more about what would make it interesting for me. Nature has good design. And Nature tends to repeat herself on this good design. That is why we see faces in the patterns of wood grain, for example. So the basic premise of the "Lips Series" is that we are all connected in some way that combines form with function. In the artistic studies of anatomy and other forms of Nature, at some point we artists leave Nature and create art. I took these kind of liberties with Zebra Lips. For example, the ear does not stick out above the mane because I wanted the zebra to be more of a surprise as the viewer walked around the sculpture. I morphed the zebra anatomy to fit the idea because I doubt that anyone seeing the artwork would not understand there was a zebra before him. But it made little sense to have a big ear sticking above the line of the upper lip -- from the front view. This stone sculpture weighs 76 pounds and would look great on a covered porch. It is a cool stone and a very fun sculpture and conversation piece! The shipping crate is 21 x 21 x 13 inches and with padded protection adds another 26 pounds. Ships from Austin, Texas 78702

I am interested in why we do what we do and how thoughts progress. Since I was a child, I watched and touched and listened, trying to make sense of things. It was easy to feel the sadness of life, but also the yin and yang. So, I work to put beauty in front of us. I have been told that my work is “all over the map” but in my mind, everything is connected. I hope you enjoy your visit and will be enticed to go to my Web site for more work and writings. Thank you.
