Today I am going to be talking about 3D art/sculptures. I always think of sculpture as being big, almost monumental, but I have a few pieces of 3D art that are pretty small but none the less sculptural. I have blogged about this horse before – it is the single most expensive thing I have ever bought – but as soon as I saw it at Potfest a few years ago I just knew that I had to have it…..
And I have never regretted buying it – I absolutely love it and am thrilled to bits to have one of my own! I bought it from this lovely lady but as I bought direct from her (I have seen her work in lots of galleries) I paid significantly less than the usual asking price (another good reason for buying direct from a maker)
Yet, another horse sculpture (notice a theme emerging?) bought at a WASP’s Studio’s Open Day about 6 years ago – I can’t remember who the artist was but I remember that me buying it made her day - she must have really needed the cash!
Again I really love this and enjoy it every day – I like the fact that it is on it’s own mini plinth like a monument in tiny scale. Alongside this is a teeny horse vessel by Song&Branch – I love how she has captures the essence of a horse on a tiny scale.
Yet more mini sculptures by PearsonMaron……
Bought at different times – I got the Cloud Factory first – I think they are beautiful, whimsical and totally original. I am now hankering after this and this but it will be some time before I have the money to buy - unless they can be classed as essential items?
Finally today are these lovely wood turned fruit….
The 2 at the front were bought from one of the crafters (to my shame I can’t remember the persons’ name) at The Creggan’s event a couple of weeks ago and the lighter, larger pear at the back was bought from a craft shop in Elgin last year – they make a lovely little grouping and none of them cost over £5 – I call that a bargain! They feel great when you handle them and the grain of the wood adds to their overall beauty – to think that someone has crafted these lovely things from a block of wood is quite amazing to me.
