Simply gorgeous photographs by Marlisha Lewis of two of the necklaces that I have fabricated for the series titled 'The Missing Sin', which has been published in the July/August edition of Be Creative with Workbox magazine.
'Excuse me, Ma'am? You have a hole in your ozone layer (#2)' is installed in Elora for the Elora Sculpture Project, 2018. She will be removed the weekend of October 27, 2018.
It was a laborious and painstaking process to fabricate these sculptures...first I made her out of wood (sand, and sand some more - and literally blew up my first sander -, and varnish), then make mold, then weld hundreds and hundreds of small metal pieces into the mold, take it out, and then weld around each individual piece...then grind. I'm really pleased with the unexpected texture that this process made however !!! Typically Derek Martin, sculptor does all of my welding - but due to the huge amount of time involved, he kindly welcomed me into his workshop to weld and assist with all parts of the process (or we would never have finished!) Hundreds of hours have gone into each sculpture :)

'Excuse me, Ma'am? You have a hole in your ozone layer (#3)' (2018) Steel, skirt auto painted.
This beauty got the cadillac treatment of me driving her to New Brunswick for the Canadian Sculpture Competition 2018-2019.
Yes, I have carved a hole..........
and it is finally starting to look like something....to me, anyway!!!
Allegedly, I have been leaving dusty hand and footprints all over the house......
I built the purple hut and carving table all by myself!
What Lies Beneath - a global collaborative project by Fiona Legg regarding menstruation....finished pads are arriving from all over the world daily now - so exciting and each is so unique and thought provoking.
You can see them on the 'What Lies Beneath' page on this website. Updated daily.
The sculptures have been started and can be seen on the adjoining webpage. I have to admit I have hit a roadblock as to how best display them....I am open to any and all suggestions!!!!!
the 'Careless Remnants' collection will be shown one more time, at The Gibson Centre, Alliston, ON during February, 2019.
The Maze Project moved to Alton Mills Art Centre, Caledon, ON and opened on May 4, 2018. It has weathered a ferocious wind storm, baking heat, and torrential rain...but it's time is coming to a close. Join us on September 30, 2018 (12-4pm) for Culture Days when the community will have the chance to decorate/improve/have fun with this sculpture before it is taken down!!!
The Beginning of a new (dusty) era.......
