Aspire by sculptin Aspire by sculptin
India soapstone. ( this is two photos of one piece).

See here -----> [link] for what this piece originally looked like, as it is made from the salvaged remains of another sculpture that broke.

Love the original piece, as well as both pieces that you created from it. Kudos to you for reclaiming the broken pieces and transforming them into something new and beautiful.

This is really good- and amazing that you made two cool sculptures from the one that broke. I actually think I may even like the two better than the original piece. A case of Synergy-where the parts are greater than the whole.:boogie:

sorry I made the same comment twice- thought it ate my first one. But that was a real case of snatching victory from defeat. A lot of guys (maybe me too) would have been so upset at the loss of "Heat" we would just have trashed the project. A bit of a life lesson for me.

What a save! I truly must say, I don't know which I like best, the original or the two resulting sculptures. They have completely different character as two, but that's what makes it just so cool!

And they are all gone. Aspire sold, I lost innuendo, and Heat, well we all know what happened to that one.

At least we could all still appreciate the work because you took the photos. And hey, I always figured selling a piece was the ultimate critical approval:D

Oh wow, for some reason this made me laugh. I would never guess it's out of a vagina sculpture. In a very positive way of course. ^_^

Love the flow of your forms gives the feeling of movement of flying or dancing. A very relaxing piece, would love to see it with different lights to see if it envokes different feels. Lovely pieces, keep it up.

Well said. Its my philosophy that the most amazing things come from accidents. An accident forces you to deal with situations in a new way, using different parts of your mind. hence "happy accidents"

i really like this one. makes me want to dig up some more pics of my older sculpture--the sensuality of flowers is one of my major themes. :highfive:

Go for it! So I assume you dig Georgia Okeefe et al. I'd like to see these works.
What made you think of flowers from this piece?

the view on the right-looks like how petals fold over. i actually had to look at the piece again to come up with a reason--the plant reference just seemed so obvious&intuitive.

A person lfiting off, much like a phoenix rising, after being downtrodden and damaged. like being born again with new hope and light, and the desire to acheive whatever lofty dream or goal imagined.

I STILL like it this way. Ever rent Harold and Maude? Another perhaps silly question--how do you mount these? it looks too heavy for epoxy--is there an internal support rod or something?

Dude?! (Looks down) No, but thanks for asking...

Nice! That way you can pick it up and give it a PROPER fondling--I LIKE that way of thinking. EeeeeXcellent...

Dude, no, not yet.

These are mounted by a metal peg that penetrates both the wooden base and the sculpture itself. it's not glued to the piece so it can still be separated.
