Juggling and balancing the 'rocks', creating the proper visual sequence, and then skewering them along a steel rod all played into the final steps of creation. A drill press, a band saw and a buffing machine were used to make the steel and aluminum armature.
To make sure the stones would remain the way they were placed, a bit of adhesive was used.
A few more dabs of pigment, the addition of 'mica' sparkle, and it is complete.
Off it goes to PlacerArts.
Outside The Box The 5th annual Outside the Box Show is a fundraiser benefitting PlacerArts. In February, 2012 regional artists were issued a "deconstructed" wood box and given two months to come up with whatever creation the mind can imagine. The results are a must-see! The completed Box Art debuts at The Arts Building Gallery on April 12 during Auburn Art Walk.
Special viewing starts at 4:00pm on April 12, until 9 pm. Also, mark your calendar for the Live Art Auction on Saturday, May 19 from 7 - 11 pm.
