Walking Wounded: Florush

Florush I've been continuing with conical shapes and decided to make some flowers. It's made of galvanized steel and brass wire, hammered brass tubing, plunger heads, and rubberized paint. I was thinking about the excitement and potential waste in hasty romance when I decided to make it- hence flushing away flourishing. I hope you like it.

Walking Wounded: LeVar Burton Horn of Plenty

LeVar Burton: Horn of Plenty All summer I was hearing the Reading Rainbow theme song in my head. I was also thinking about pinwheels. Then, at some point I started thinking about the horror movie, Candyman. In the film, the character has bees come out of his mouth. I thought to myself, who is LeVar Burton? He's a giant cornucopia with pinwheels exploding out of him- sending educational cartoon butterflies and inspiration to millions of kids via VHS. So, I made a giant cornucopia, about 4 1/2 feet long by over 2 feet wide out of blue foam insulation. Then, I used 50lbs of plaster to build up coats. After 20 hours of sanding I got to the shape I was after. I hope you like it, and I also hope that damn theme song will leave me be...
