After a successful fall show in October I am settling into my studio and working on a number of new commissions. The first project I have embarked on is a dining room pedestal table that emulates a cluster of Stag Horn Coral. This is an exclusive piece that was commissioned by a client in Los Angeles. Continuing with the table theme I am in the final stages of completing a new giant octopus sculpture that supports either a round or square coffee table top. The coffee table is expected to be completed by early January and will be on display at the Shell Aero Centre at the Victoria International Airport.
I am also working on a life-size sculpture of a mountain lion that is posed in a lying position with a slight flick to the tail. This piece will be cast in bronze this December.
This winter I will be sculpting a commissioned life sized White Sided Dolphin that will be installed at the entrance to the Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort.
My next scheduled show is on April 6 and 7th at the Pacific Brant Carving and Art Show in Sidney BC. Followed by the Saanich Peninisula Studio Tour on June 9 and 10th. Visitors to the studio are always welcome, just phone in advance to make arrangements.
The recently completed Pacific Octopus sculpture shown above is 13 x 10 x 3 inches and is the first in an Edition of 25. The Giant Octopus designed as a coffee table is shown below in painted wax.
