  Life in the Hive

2013/2014, granite, limestone, marble and bronze

This sculpture presents a typical comb  with all the stages of bee development a beekeeper typically observes when working on his hive.

'Life in the Hive' has been displayed at the entrance to the 'Coastal Maine Botanical Garden' in Boothbay Harbor as part of the show "Pollinators' in 2014, and at the historic 'Sarah Orne Jewett House' in South Berwick / Maine in 2015.

In the summer of 2016 it was part of the sculpture show 'Centennial Visions' at the 'Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park' in Woodstock / Vermont, and is now part of the sculpture show 'Autumn' at Hawk Ridge Farm in Pownal, Maine.

$6,500

 
  Toothed Fish

 2013, granite, 36"x30"x15", approx. 600 lbs

The teeth of this innovative sculpture consist of quartz crystals. The surface is polished to reveal the mottled color of the stone; some of the original stone texture is preserved around the mouth and gills to maintain a rustic appearance.

'Toothed Fish' was my contribution to 'Celebrating the Art of Sculpture' at the Peabody Institute Library in Danvers, MA, in 2014, and graces the grounds of 'Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site' in Cornish / NH until August 22, 2016.

This piece can be mounted on an existing stone or delivered with the base seen in the photo (approximately 2 ft. high and weighs around 700 lbs). Delivery and setup within the Seacoast area at no additional charge.

Genetically Modified Squid

 

2013, weathered rock boulder, approximately 4 ft. long and weight around 250 lbs

 

One side of this sculpture is a squid, the other - after genetic modification, turns out to be a shark.

 

This work is inspired by the shape of the raw rock. The shape of the snout and the white quartz vein that makes up the teeth were part of the raw stone.

 

This sculpture was part of my show at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point in Rye, NH, in 2014, and can now be seen in my sculpture garden at Green Art, Kittery, ME.

  Tuna with Eye of God

black granite from Maine, 52" x 23" x 9", weight approximately 400 lbs.

Tuna was first part of my show at the 'Seacoast Science Center' at Odiorne Point in Rye, NH, in 2014, and has since been in various regional sculpture shows. In 2016 it is displayed at the 'Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park' in Woodstock / Vermont until August 22.

The shape in the side of the fish represents the eye of god, symbolizing that a spark of the divine is innate to all living creatures. That this eye also resembles a target disk refers to the abuse and mass butchering that we carry out. We have to treat every creature with respect, even if we use it for our nourishment.

Cidaris

 

2011, black African granite

 

The black African granite allows for great detail, as long as one can cope with the extraordinary density and hardness of this stone. Color contrast is achieved by contrasting finely chiseled texture with polished surfaces. I want to highlight the beautiful symmetry of echinoderms with this piece.

 

This sculpture is part of my show at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point in Rye, NH, from June 19 to Sept. 13, 2014
