The thing I love about doing these pieces is that it's all impulsive...suddenly out of nowhere I get the urge to do one and I have absolutely no preconceived ideas. I just grab (or mix) a color that seems right, the shape is completely random...when it looks right, well, that's just it. Usually I just find a stamp pattern and do it once...this one required a blending of 4 different stampings and some tool imprints to make it 'just right'. Not MY 'just right' but whatever the fates decide.
As soon as I saw this I knew its title and I knew the finish it needed. The base is a lime green and the patina is a copper metallic. The photo shows the blending but it can't capture the way this glows like gold when the light hits it...it's just awesome.
I don't what it is about this series...and I don't know how long it will continue or how it may evolve...but it's really like someone besides myself is behind it...and that is what makes it so unique.
Happy Earthday, World...I hope the coming years are kinder to you.
