Re: New to site--Hello!

Thanks Lynda! Getting super busy. Sold four sculptures now and got a commission for a fish for a gentleman in Utah. Looking at expanding into another gallery.

Here's my very latest. Inspired by the Rat Rods and the people who built them. A long time ago, hot rods got too expensive for the common folk with flashy chrome and paint jobs that cost more than the car. These cars wound up only being driven on the weekends and owned by an exclusive club of wealthy individuals. The poor folk would find used parts and a can of spray paint to color their rides. These were the true fans of driving/racing. Their rides were meant to be driven hard and put up wet (to use a horse analogy) The catfish was and maybe to a certain extent still is considered a poor mans fish. A bottom feeding mud fish that in actuality, is tastier than a lot of fish out there.

So in honor of the rat rods, this is Cat Rod. (in rattle-can black of course)
TL/DR: I made a catfish.

Re: New to site--Hello!

Congrats on selling your work and a new commission! Your work is refreshingly different and the lines are beautiful. Cat Rod is a great name for that piece. Your nostalgic story is a good one too.

Re: New to site--Hello!

Oooo, I love the fish! I love all your stuff. It looks like such fun to create!

All's well here. I'm working on my sculpture again, and have three sculpture students too, which is a lot of fun. I FINALLY (after 6 years) got the book my daughter and I have been co-writing on how to find and care for your perfect horse in shape that the publisher likes - once my daughter approves or revises a measly 5 footnotes, it will go to print!!!! Having that out of my hair has opened up my time so I'm able to get back to sculpting, finally! Whew! And after such a long break, it's FUN again! I'd love to try whimsical stuff like you do, if only I knew how. At some point, maybe I'll give it a shot. Are they soldered or welded? I used to do stained glass (about 30 years ago) and was pretty good at the copper foil soldering. I'd have to get that going again, if that's how they're assembled. It would be fun to do something different . . .

Re: New to site--Hello!

Congrats on the book! Iím sure it will be a tremendous success! And congrats to getting back to sculpture.

As for the process on these sculpts, I use a butane torch as a soldering iron wonít produce the heat needed to solder large pieces. Since you already have stained glass experience, Iíd say you are Absolutely able to do similar sculptures.
Concept is the same. Binding two metals with solder using heat.

The sculpture below is one I did of a rainbow trout that combined stained glass with torch soldering.

Thanks for the info! I still have lots of glass but some of my tools are rusty (my bad). They can certainly be replaced. Once I get this piece off to yhe foundru, I'm gonna play withcopper! Fun!

Re: New to site--Hello!

Hi:


I am a beginner sculptor. i just started learning how to sculpt with clay.
I love the fish sculptures very much. They look very cool and original.
I hope you can sell many .
I am happy you went to Ringling, I wish I could go there.
I think in life, is better to do what you love for a living than to
work for money. As long as you got enough to live happy, is better
to spend time doing what makes you happy. I am just learning to
sculpt and paint, but I love these crafts very much. I know it will
not pay super money-wise, but I enjoy doing these.
I want to create great art, but for me the payoff is just to enjoy
doing it.
