It’s been a week of inspiration and hard work on this body of mine.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Clothing Designer Robert Comstock @robertcomstockfashion to produce a window sculpture for his store in Boise on Idaho St.
I’m So inspired by his amazing talent as a designer and experiences as a world traveler. This piece reflex his experience hunting with Mongolians and their golden eagles and other birds of prey. I was deeply moved by the first woman to be allowed to complete and hunt with her eagle alongside men.
I've finally added my signs for my commissions to both restaurants in Boise, Coa De Jima's 'Tree of Life' and Barbacoa's 'Me Deuce'. Stop by both restaurants for amazing food, drinks and art. Looking at that picture of Robert still makes me tear up. Miss him. It was nice to sit with my sculptures and take some more photos. I will always be thankful to Robert and the Barbacoa family for their support and appreciation for the arts.
Delia Dante's is working on her second skull in the series: Greedy Bastard
Delia has been working on the completion of her second skull in the series 'You Can't Take IT With You'. Each skull was formed from a 3D print using plant based filament then electroplated with copper. The crowns were all drawn using a computer process then cut out on her CNC machine. Once the skull has been burned-out she incorporates enamel, both liquid and powdered, to establish its color. This week she has been concentrating on the small details of the crown, eyes and teeth.
Skull Three has just been printed and Delia is just about to put it in the electroplate tank.
Delia has been working hard to update the look and feel of both the gift shop and class studio. She has removed her market jewelry and opened the gift shop for more fine art space. The classroom now has new retail shelves and a better visuals of the class examples for students to look at before their adventure begins.
