First in Santa Fe
First, a word of explanation about my process. When I get to the point of “rough sculpting” (that point where the piece is fully identified or roughed out), the fun of exploration is over. The not-so-much-fun part of refining the form and sanding is left. It takes discipline, a loathed word!
Once I had gotten my initial design ideas, Passages became my prime focus and my distraction. Several years later when looking around for my “next” piece, both First and Split caught my eye.
Since I had free time during the construction of my new studio here in Santa Fe, I sat and sanded while the building was taking shape. First Born was named as the first piece finished in my new studio.
