"Moon at Rest"

Stainless Steel
21 x 10 x 6 inches, including base
Casting no. 2 of 10

This is casting number two of the piece I made last fall. I have nicknamed her "Moon Lady" but she is also known as "Ascension." You can see from the first casting that calling her "Ascension" was appropriate for the mounting my clients wanted: suspended in air and appearing to rise. 

This second casting is reclining on a 1/2 inch thick stainless slab. And I couldn't call her "Ascension" because she simply isn't ascending. So "Moon at Rest" she is!

I have shipped her off to be part of Sylvan Gallery's grand opening at their new location in Wiscasset, Maine. If you are in the area, stop by and say hello to Ann and Rick Scanlan the gallery's lovely owners. Here is their Facebook page as well.

Welding the gleaming lady in my garage studio. New helmet too!
