North Carolina Veteran's Park Sculpture

North Carolina Veteran's Park Sculpture

This is one of 7 seven sculptures that are installed at the new North Carolina Veteran's Park in Fayetteville, NC. Each of the selected six sculptors were given a word that related back to military life and service. These words were then interpreted by each sculptor into representative forms through sculpture. Each sculpture had to contain used military items and artifacts but not directly used in its original, identifiable form. My word was "Courage" - I defined "Courage" by the saving of a fellow warrior in battle... by going back into the battle to retrieve a wounded soldier and bring Her/Him to safety - Leave No-one behind. The two outer triangles represent the two soldiers that are carrying the wounded soldier... the center triangle, back to safety. At the top of each triangle is a piece of hand-colored, fused glass. Contained within the glass are images of the medals of honor, as well as, the purple heart, which is embedded into the center triangles red glass. Inside the "body" of each triangle (soldier), are woven, the military items that I chose to embody each warrior... Military truck grates, truck hoods, brackets, wheel rims, brake plates - strong, enduring items. This was my description - there are many acts of courage and this happens to be my description of Courage. This was a very exciting and personal sculpture for me... It was wonderful to have been chosen to work on this project.

Winter Bird Nest - Wire Tree Sculpture

18"H x 14"W x 14"D
Created using 22, 24 & 26 gauge galvanized steel wire. This piece expresses a promise of spring. The tree is bare with no leaves and a very intricate network of roots. All the color and life is shown in the gold color nest, with the 2 white pearl eggs. The tree sits on a mound made of sea sand many assorted pebbles and rocks. The sea sand and pebbles are painted in yellows, greens and whites, using India ink, which will not fade in sunlight, and gives the appearance of moss covered earth. The piece is planted on an 8 inch round solid wood base, with hand cut openings on the sides. The wood base was made in Japan.

What better use for those old mixing bowls?

Salvaged from the depths of the thrift store, this discarded mixing bowl has been reincarnated into a fun and playful baby triceratops, who is as happy to be inside as she is outside.
