Item Description

"Buoy O Buoy" - Creating the sculpture was different from my usual work in only one way - the lobster. Using that reference as a starting point, a stylized lobster claw was sketched onto the wood blank, and from there the process of exposing and creating forms was intuitive, informed only by the sculptural vocabulary I have developed over 45 years of making art. Painting the buoy was much the same process, though my preference for live lobsters (beautiful creatures!) clearly lost out to the red of a cooked one.
