Windows of Cahors . . On the route to Amazing of LAnge du Lazaret
Dragged the parts into the back yard to assemble. Wanted some space and to have a nice backdrop of wildflowers.
Bolting up the supports to their respective parts. There are three layers to the design: a center core that defines the unshadowed portions of the balls and the cup and mirrored layers, front and back, that represent the shadowed parts. I didnt get shots of the process, but the shadow layers were chemically blackened for contrast.
If we forget about the politics for a moment (I know, it's hard - bear with me for this single toot), and focus on aesthetics, did ChatGPT design this Are there no unionist/loyalist sculptors who could make more of this, so that those who delight in the partition of Ireland could find get something out of looking at this
The North is held up by a small pedestal and also a big pedestal. Is this a metaphor
Checking the fit of the supports. Its perfect, btw the chief reason I do everything in CAD first. No waste, no fuss.
Interactions with Water by Gemma Coyle and the Yoker Community. I pass this sculpture quite regularly as I drive along Dumbarton Road in Glasgow, and it always raises a smile. There's just something I find quite charming about it, possibly the rather cute hedgehogs!
These are the supports that hold the whole shebang upright. They get covered by soil and mulch, doing their work in secret.
The huge majority of my labor on this was surface prep. The faces all need sanding and each hole needs to have any sharp edges or burrs removed. Hundreds of holes, cleaned up by hand.
For context, this was the design in CAD that was awarded the contract. The project came about through a percent-for-art requirement attached to the Citys remodeling of the 70 year old course clubhouse.
Update on the Ace! sculptures Im fabricating for the municipal course in my home town of Loveland, Colorado. After some delays due to miscommunication, I picked up a giant stack of laser-cut stainless steel.
There are a couple of weird random statues next to one of the grills behind my building.
I'm just going to think of them as guardian spirits

Dancing business suits, a handbag with legs, and contorted vehicles are just a few of the uncanny scenes visitors to Yorkshire Sculpture Park will encounter.

Dama con cappello, 1970
Ceramic sculpture by Danish artist Pernille Pontoppidan Pedersen, 2020s.
Worlds within worlds emerge from the kaleidoscopic visions of Canadian artist Chris Millar, whose meticulous sculptures encompass a range of materials, mechanisms, and sound.
I've always loved the quality of this Glasgow Coat of Arms on the front of Saint Andrew's Parish Church (and with the building datung fron the mid 1700s, it must be one of the oldest in the city), but what's with the troll at the bottom
William Caxton and Johannes Gutenberg look out over the city from the facade of the former Glasgow Herald building on Buchanan Street. They were sculpted by John Mossman and were erected in 1879.

I once built a Claw Machine but I sort of took liberties with that name...
This one is amusing to me.

If you ever get the chance, go visit. It's a wonderful place.

Antennae spring from the crown of a grasshopper, and an alert expression characterizes a cacomixtles beady eyes in George Rodriguezs ongoing Mexican Zodiac series.
It's Thursday, so here's a throwback to my Sleaford Mods sculpts, together with some process pics (tho please excuse the horrible Insta filters!)
It's a pretty fragile piece (too many elements) so I couldn't sell it, so they're still keeping me company in the studio
Love these relief sculptures on the 1890s Savoy Centre on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow. Carved on the spandrels between Roman arch windows by William Birnie Rhind, they're remarkably expressive and fluid.
This sculpture reminds me of the title credits of a James Bond film. But instead of a man with a gun at the centre of the optical vortex, we have the much nicer prospect of verdant nature.
Don't look at it for too long though, or you might get sucked in...
