Could Be A Bone

This is a new Wabi-Sabi inspired sculpture I had finished recently.  It is titled 'Could Be A Bone' because the top found object looks like it could be a bone but it's actually a small piece of driftwood I found at the beach.

The piece measures 9.5 inches high (24.13 cm), 9 inches wide (22.86 cm) and 1.5 inches deep (3.81 cm).  It sits on a marble stone base.  Created from construction materials and found objects.

Three Things

I have finished a few more Wabi Sabi sculptures this week.  This one is titled 'Three Things'.
It measures 6.5 inches high by 4.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep.

Made from lumber, nails, wire, braided rope and was painted with acrylic paint.  It is mounted on a marble tile plate.

Wabi Sabi Sculpture

For the last several years I have been developing a new body of work based on the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi Sabi.  Wabi Sabi means finding the beauty of life in simple, rustic imperfections and accepting the impermanence of things.

I have just recently began to show them and I have to say I am very happy with the response.  Some are large and some are small.  This first piece is 44 inches high.

I like working on a smaller scale also.  This next one is only 3.5 inches high.

The next work is a small wall hanging piece that is 15 inches high.
