Sculpture Sale

Help! I'm drowning in sculptures and need help clearing my closet! I'm posting here all of the work I have for sale.  I want to move this work so please don't hesitate to get in touch with me!



MIEL

"Miel," bronze, number 10 (of 20), 10 x 4 x 24.5 inches with base

"Miel," bronze, number 10 (of 20), 10 x 4 x 24.5 inches, shown without base


LUNA 
To me she is a closer-than-we-think mythical spirit. I would say that most of my female figures are created with this muse in mind.

"Luna," bronze, number 3 (of 15), 19 x 4 x 3 inches
"O Victory" is a figure based on the "Winged Victory/Nike of Samothrace." The original Greek sculpture is one of my favorites, a fierce and passionate spirit-goddess.

"O Victory," bronze, number 3 (of 20),  25 x 8 x 8 inches with base


"Reina," bronze, number 3, 36 x 6 x 6 inches



The following plaster dresses are from my installation "Stories the Hummingbird Told Me." The body is gone, but leaves traces of herself. Sentimentally motivated, I observe the same about the insects, animals and plants around me.

"Lilac Dress,"  plastered dress with paint

Reina is a sentinel, a female guardian of strength and stillness. Her name means queen in Spanish. This casting of Reina is hydro-stone, a very hard plaster, over which I've dripped paint and parafin wax. I fell in love with the plaster/wax effect in college when I first came across the works of Medardo Rosso. I love plaster as a primary medium and wax over top just makes it luminescent and other-worldly. Probably don't want to put her in a sunny window!

"Reina," painted and waxed hydro-stone, 36 x 6 x 6 inches

"Duo," terra cotta, 16.5 x 8.5 x 3 inches

This "Duo" is all about resurrecting broken things and making them better. Here, a broken cast from the mold became an excuse to try a new non-toxic plastic resin I discovered. I was casting legs at the time, and after mixing a batch of plastic I poured the remainder over this piece. Lots of batches later, I ended up with this. Another drip, drip, drip....is that time I hear standing still?

"Duo," terra cotta and plastic, 17 x 8.5 x 3 inches

"Morning Muse," terra cotta, 21 inches tall

"Traveler," hydro-stone, 14 x 14 x 11 inches
