Poor posture, candleheaded man, sad trombones. I’ve been exploring the sculptural potential of carving on a lathe, with an offset turning technique that’s dramatic to see and frankly a little scary. The outcome here is anthropomorphically emotive, as well as dynamically textural and organic. This piece went home with a lucky supporter of the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska, from their 14th annual art auction in March 2017.
