Roosters, Monsters, and Fish


Here is the front and back of 2 rooster pieces I made for the gallery.
The bottle shape is just what I was looking for and will make more of those today. I am still trying to push the forms a little. I want to work on more interesting shapes, trying always to make a shape that is pleasing but also takes to the carving well.

And since the monsters haven't neglected me, I felt I had to include a drawing of them. This is an image of them crawling out of my head as I sit naked on the floor. It is harder to see this piece on the camera but when it is fired I think the image will be stronger.

















And here is the beginning of a dresser top that will go in our bedroom. It is very raw, I have only just begun, but the colors are singing to me. Koi fish are supposed to be lucky so hopefully they will bring us good fortune and happiness!

I love your narrative style. I get the impression that not only are you very productive, artistically, you are also consistently productive. Very admirable!
My fav is the monster vase.
