Today from 5-9 pm is the celebration for the Marshall Bridge Welding Workshops. This is the 10th year that Stan Smokler has been offering these weeklong intensive welding workshops.
I stopped by at the end of the week while the guys were setting up for this evening and to hang one of my pieces from a tree along the creek. Most of the work is within the “walls” so when you come this evening remember to “step outside” and see my 3 pieces.
|This is the first piece I did during the week. Found that fabulous
netting a.k.a. fencing that you will see in all 3 pieces at the end of this post.
I envision this pond side in my backyard.
|Artist and workshop techie Bob Bickey made this piece for Stan to commemorate this auspicious occasion, we all signed in limestone chalk and Bob torched our signatures.|
|Love the shadow cast by this sculpture by
another participant Maureen McCarthy
|The SPACE… where most of the work is.|
But then… step “outside” to see the “Nanci Hersh’s”
|One view of my 3 pieces…
A pedestal piece, a floor or ground piece… and then
a hanging piece.
I made the hanging piece as a structure to hang my wire and pulp nets… but am rethinking that. The piece works by itself and I did end up making a much simpler structure that could work for the smaller nets…
so many possibilities… bazinga!
