A commission from Australia (and a trip there)!
March 15th, 2016
An award from the big outdoor sculpture event ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ brought me to Perth, Australia in early March. This and the sister event in Sydney are the most-visited public sculpture exhibits in the world, something I’d long been interested in doing, so it was quite an honor. There were sculptors from all over the world there, and the works were spread out along a half mile of beach, plus the sloped, grassy hill at the edge of the beach.
The work of mine that they selected was “Enclosing Form, Reaching Together,” a work about 6 1/2 feet tall and 7 feet wide, made of weathering steel — my first sculpture in this material.
