The rock itself sits in front of the plant, and the plant itself is alive, so it gets a new plant every year. Can be moved around, etc.

The peacock went for $500 I was told. I think he looks great! Thank you to Annabel for sending the pics, done by Kirstin Wakal

New work underway – Mother and Children

Got home this week from such an adventure over the past two months, and started work on this clay sculpture of a mother and her three children. Details and refinement will come after the clay becomes leather hard, and I can carve in to it.

Overall dimensions are about 13 inches x 4 inches x 4 inches. I am expecting the edition to be 25.
