on Cement Board
Dimensions: 10.5" x 6.5"
commission walked in the door at the tail end of a
huge glass tile project that was just wrapping up.
looking forward to a break but this was a request from
a friend... I could not refuse.
it turns out, this was like the fresh lemon sorbet after a large
satisfying 5 course meal, light and refreshing. Dusting
off my hammer & hardie, I set to work. Working on stone
again, with all its color, texture and personality was
such a wonderful cleansing of the palette. While doing
the initial research, I conjured up yet another piece I
would like to create with this interesting animal. One
thing always leads to the next.
VII is now the latest in a collection of this Dromedary
for its owner. They are of different materials and poses,
this one, the first to be set in stone. Many more will
be able to stand on his shoulders.
