Random New Work

There is light at the end of the tunnel and it isn’t a train ready to knock me over.  I deliver work to the Brookline Arts Center tomorrow for their annual Crafts Showcase.  Then I have a few small items to deliver to a local gallery and two remaining wholesale orders to ship.

Here are a few new pieces of work that were the result of wholesale orders and show preparations.

And a new BS (because there is always room for more BS.)

New BS

Bottle stoppers (BS) that is.

Wine bottle stoppers are among my best selling wholesale products.  However, I’ve become a little bored with the standard designs I’ve offered for the last 1 1/2 years.  Now that I’m sculpting I wanted to try and combine faces/heads with the stoppers.

At first I thought of creating a stopper made entirely from polymer clay.  That required a lot of clay and I was concerned about strength and durability.

Then I realized I could simply paint the wood core, pull faces from molds I’ve made of my own face sculpts and other faces I’ve collected and mount them to the wood core.

These Head BS remind me of masks or shields.  I brought them to the Paradise City show to “test the waters” and see how they would be received.  I sold three of them.

I need to play around with the idea a little more and will introduce them to the wholesale market in 2008.

What do you think?
