In the Round

I can find working with a box format not so much limiting but predictable. Working in a circular format, for me, is much more challenging. Somehow these forms are just more difficult to make satisfying.

Case in point, “Moonrise” (see 21 June 2021) is still waiting to be assembled. The basic ingredients are perfectly fine and yet, as a whole, I am just not satisfied with the work. So it waits.

A more successful work is Silver Satori II and its creation started when I found a beautiful sugar spoon. I knew I wanted this as a focal point but I wasn’t sure how to incorporate it into a piece. Working backwards, from the center out, it was a matter of finding circular ingredients that would work together to create a cascading repetition of circles.
