GENETICALLY CLONED AND SLIGHTLY ALTERED ROCKING BUSHEEP
I saw an opportunity to create works for an exhibition called Dysfunctional Furniture. The concept of making some sort of child's rocker was in my head which then turned to making an ode to the current President George Bush and his stance on cloning.
I created the two Busheep out of walnut and maple, with painted maple/copper handle bars and zebrawood appointments.
I was really happy at how clean these works came out and still up there on my list of favorites.
Although they were not accepted into the show they made appearances in numerous exhibitions over the following years including one in Washington, DC during his last year of presidency.
A simple straight forward form based carving that was covered in plaster and chipped away at.
everything is a distraction
This work was a continuation on my concept of creating lathe turned and hand shaped fried eggs. It was the first time that I created a "work" out of them.

The following works were created after Sockrates for the 2007 Esherick exhibition.
They were portraits of my friends. I really loved making them and wish I had more time to create more.
I utilized a heavy rasp to give them a worn cotton aesthetic to them.
