Here’s a first look at a recently-completed shadow sculpture — Giving Thanks, maquette.
This piece was created as we approached Thanksgiving – sorry, I’ve gotten waaaay behind in posting things on this blog.
The picture was taken in the shop, on the worktable where I work out the designs of these pieces.
What we have here in the direct view of the work, is a Thanksgiving dinner — turkey, flowers, candles, and soup or veggie bowls with lids.
All done in steel. Forged, welded, folded.
In contrast, the shadow shows the recipient’s hands, giving thanks.
This is a maquette, or sample/model – I’ll create a finished piece some time later.
