~Seascape # 3~

~Seascape # 3~

This is the third Octopus Seascape piece in this series,...Props too Tim Lindemann for gettin my octopus techs.up to snuff...
This one is a 4 1/2 pound beast....
Sculptures sure do get heavy...13" tall X 6 1/2 wide...
The faceted piece was done by hand-on a lap wheel instead of a faceting machine so the cuts are simple and not quite perfect...two points were used for the entire hollow sections...
thanks for checkin this out ..pce.

~ BOTANICAL TUBE ~.. jan. 04 ( ?? )?????

Big ass sculpted plant piece 22 inches tall ,roughly, I forget exactly how tall it is ,but you can see a soft glass vessel behind it that is pretty burly, this piece is from january 04.. ( ????)...It's on display in a private collection...and will never be used as anything but decoration............????upon fufther consideration,I don't think that date is right...i'm gonna have to do a little diggin.I'm pretty sure it's older than that /..............ALL THE LEAVES ARE GREEN DWARF,STALKS,BUDS AND OTHER DETAILS ARE Prism Color -i think- ANOTHER EXTINCT GREEN .

There's a translucent backing on the dichro,instead of like turbo or somthin'( ran out of dark stuff the day i made this ) that makes the dichro harder than normal to photo.....not my favorite piece....not my least favorite either....!

>>>>>> '97 <<<<<<

" I suddenly became stangely inebriated.The external world became changed as in a dream.Objects appeared to gain in relief; they assumed unusual dimensions;and colors became more glowing .Even self-perception and the sense of time were changed.When the eyes are closed, colored pictures flashed past in a quickly changing kaleidoscope. After a few hours,the not unpleasent inebriation,which had been experienced whilst I was fully conscious,disappeared.What had caused this condition ?"
~Albert Hofmann, Laboratory Notes (1943)

*And a big shout to all those that have supported me & supported my Art along the way.
**Thanks to all the guys i used to work with and bounce ideas with in Boulder.
