Christmas is a high point in the year for working sculpture.
Think about it. The holidays involve people creating, choosing, using, decorating, appreciating and placing
You might call it by other names: toys, a christmas creche display, gifts, Christmas trees, ornaments, wrapping, presents. You own a lot more "sculpture" than you think. It's all around you.
|Philippine santo head as Mary, Porcelain Chinese doll as baby J on antique stand.|
|Japanese bronze rat signature chop, two of my own carvings, Pipe cleaner Fox, ivory horse...|
|Glass birds, Balinese carved figure, Chinese votive figure, Mexican clay cactus|
|Disney's Alladin, an antique wooden Door of Hope doll, and two of my own carvings|
Every year all my tiny sculptures are assembled on the mantle into an unorthodox nativity scene.
Balinese bone demons, a carved ivory horse and an Eskimo walrus carving from my parents time, Chinese votive figures, Mexican wooden animals, plastic toys are all part of my library of sculpture, loved for what they are and what they evoke.
Merry Christmas to all.
