Horses and more New Mexico Centennial horses

I'm working day and night to get the New Mexico Centennial Horses ready to ship to the Museum shops in Santa Fe. They placed an order for a dozen more last week. I'm so slow. I wish I had a mold to speed up the process but I resist because I feel like it takes away the unique handmade quality of my work. I think people like to see the irregular surface, the imprint of my fingers in the fired clay. I've decided to focus more on the Native American Animal Spirits this year and along with the horses, I have a wolf, bear, raven and even a tiny deer mouse.

Horses and more

I dreamt of horses last night. Thundering hooves, steamy breath, plumes of moist, hot air billowing up from their nostrils. Can't wait to get back into the creating phase in the studio. I'm finishing up a Rain Dancer right now for the Ruidoso Art Festival. It starts next weekend. I have ordered books on horse anatomy, sculpting horses, and sculpting animals. I hope to introduce a new line of animal sculptures this fall.

more sculptures for the airport

Fancy Dancer

El Paso International Airport Exhibit

Finally set up five sculptures at the airport for the " Art Windows of El Paso "exhibit at the airport. People were crowded around the display, looking at all the details. I made each piece very intricate. The dancer is dramatic and has bright red accents and elaborate feathered headdress.Tiny eyelashes, small medals, silver rings and other embellishments make each sculpture unique. The Storyteller has a bowl with shards of pottery, obsidian arrowhead, even a fossilized seashell from the desert. I thought that this would be a great opportunity to tell a story with each piece. I think I succeeded. As I was leaving the window, I overheard two women talking about how the old Indian was really telling "big" stories and thus his secretive smile and glinting eyes.
The opening reception is June 30th and I have to speak to the audience. I guess I better think about what would be appropriate and relevant to the Art community in Southwest Texas.
