Sculpture and David Bales

David Bales is a talented friend. He's worked as an engineer for artists, and as an artist for engineers to facilitate architectural and public art projects. He's a photographer, designer, and a master problem solver.

I needed him for brute strength.

After helping set up my display at Rare Plant Research, David wandered the grounds and took these beautiful photos. I wanted to share them with you. Here they are, in no particular order.
The Tower at Villa Catalana. All photographs by David Bales.

The Grape Arbor. Instead of stone, the arbor is made of recycled concrete.

The Artist's Hands.....

Colorful Planting with Glass Mulch.

Playful Chandeliers in the Grape Arbor. All photographs by David Bales.

I just finished the little lion and will feature him a post about him soon.

I love the play of light across the rough surface of this carving.

All photographs by David Bales.

My favorite photo. The end of a perfect evening.

OMG...that last photo just gave me chills....! it is always about the play of light and shadow....

You've just summed up the sculptor's job, Theresa.

Regardless of the subject matter,
any sculpture is really about creating an interference pattern for light. The art bounces light and/or captures light through bumps and divots.
