Art & Whimsy in the Garden

Sage Eco Gardens in Los Osos, CA, launched an art show on February 5, 2011. The show features about 20 San Luis Obispo county artists with art suitable for outdoor display, and will run through May. I have 4 pieces in the show, including the debut of the new figurative work I am doing in pewter, along with two steel masks and bronze figure.
Pewter is a new direction for me, and by nature it requires a small scale. The figures in the photo above would all be about four and a quarter inches tall if standing. Due to the low melt temperature of pewter, these pieces were directly cast from high temperature rubber molds rather than the lost wax process.

The bronze figure shown below is a somewhat larger piece. If standing, she would be about 16 inches tall, but is seated on a rock in the middle of a waterfall overlooking a pond.

You can see these and much more at Sage Eco Gardens between February and May of 2011.
