Drum of Fire

October 13th, 2008

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.
Henry David Thoreau

This piece is dedicated to two drummers: Jim Germond and Baba Olatunji. The precision and energy that they manifest is astonishing and energizing.

This piece is so muscular. I feel stronger just looking at it. He is singing along with the passionate rhythm of the drum. Coil built and fired clay, painted with acrylic.
I am on task, on track, completely focused on my upcoming show at Gallery in the Field, opening in December. That, and the three classes I am teaching.
Much progress on all fronts.

Such an artful week: two openings and the Brandon Artists Guild Auction. A whirlwind of excellent, exciting art and dialogue.

    This is an expressive piece! "Drum of Fire" Guy's left arm is so well sculpted… I dig the position of the fingers and the height of the arm… lovely. Nicely done!

    Muscles, strength, personal empowerment. It's all connected, with the fibronacci sequence and the golden mean.
