Item Description

"Crow Magnum" - Who isn’t intrigued by crows?  They are often a theme in my art work.  Probably like most of the artists here, the buoy sat on my worktable over the winter, for months awaiting inspiration.  The unfinished buoy sat propped up in a corner of my worktable, next to the crow.  I was stopped in my tracks one morning as I looked over my shoulder, squinted, and saw them both as one.  Majestically integrated.  So often our solutions are right under our noses if we just pay attention.  I love when that happens.

Sculpture made of unfired Fiber Clay.  Surface painted with encaustic wax, latex paint, gold trim and wire.  Not for outdoor use.



Otty is primarily an encaustic painter but her talents and choice of medium varies.  Her encaustics, silkscreens and sculpture can be seen at Gallery-the-Sea in Port Clyde which opened this Spring with 5 other area artists.  She works out of a breathtakingly beautiful oceanside studio in Turkey Cove and also in Portland at a large cooperative of 55 other professional artists near Munjoy Hill. This buoy auction was her brainchild.

Currently showing at GALLERY BY THE SEA, which is located next to the Village Ice Cream store, 875A Port Clyde Rd in Port Clyde, Maine
