I have to confess, having watched discovery and star Trek and a host of other star-based shows, I have a tremendous attraction to our last best unpolluted frontier. For me creation says it all. It's the big bang. It's the beginning. It's beautiful
This is a bold and stunning abstract fountain. It reminds me of what one would see watching an alchemist converting lead to gold. It also looks like two planets at War with each other. That's the beauty of an abstract...interpretation. Let us know your interpretation of your piece. The other beautiful thing about these pieces is they are not stamped out. Each one is going to be somewhat different from the last. Would you rather have it the other way
Assuming you want to know the truth here, to achieve all the natural-looking patinas and textures on this fountain, we had to: pound it with a variety of different hammers, run back and forth over it with my kubota, twist it into weird contortions, then untwist it, shoot it repeatedly with special bullets, heat it, quench it, then hit it with strange chemicals. All that work just to get the "look" of something you'd find in a magical copper Mine. Then...when it's all finished we cover it with optical Lexan so that the coloration remains just like the day you bought it. Our little group here is split on whether it's the wall of a Canyon: up-close, or that same Canyon viewed from 40,000 feet. Either way, it's really pretty.
Okay, folks, for those astute observers, this one looks a whole lot like blues in the night. Yup! it originated as a custom version of that very fountain. And, quite frankly, we had a lot of trepidation about making a blues in the night...without any blue whatsoever. When it was said and done, however, my wife, Pamela and son Cameron came over and said they really liked it and that it "popped". (the ultimate compliment around here.) if it "pops" for you let us know
