Musings - How To Make Pickles From Cuccumbers

Lee Dellinger Fine Art Gallery

My good friend Lee Dellinger has recently opened an Art Gallery in Statesville North Carolina.

Our association began in the early 2000’s, when she started carrying my wheeled animals in Beaufort Fine Arts, her gallery of the time, which was located near the water in Beaufort, North Carolina. Our almost twenty year association has grown into a friendship, Lee really cares about the art, her artists and her customers.

Over the years Lee has encouraged me to make my complexed narrative pieces and larger sculptures, generously backing up her belief in my sculptures, by featuring my work in solo and group shows. She has successfully placed many sculptures in collector’s homes.

I wish Lee all the best in her new venture.
If you are in the area, please check out her gallery it will be worth your time.

My precious studio cats through the years

Red

Red, my first studio cat

Red was my first studio cat, we lived downtown and she would walk with me to drop off my artwork at the Tucson Museum  of Art gift shop. She had six toes per paw, front and back. My kiln was at another location, which had grass, bushes and trees for her to explore. I would zip her in a backpack and we would ride the motorcycle there as I didn’t have a car. When it was time to go I’d call her up, put her back into the bag and we would go home.


Roswell & Simon

My studio cate Roswell & Simon

Roswell and Simon were kittens who grew up together, they were in the studio from the start, they had their own box on my work table, were very careful with my work and never broke a thing.

Roswell taught Little guy studio etiquette.

When Little Guy was not outside catching rabbits, he spent his time in my studio keeping me company.


Sam

Sam did not spend much time in the studio, he was elderly when he came to live with me, although he liked to be near me when I was on the computer.

All great cats are very respectful of my work and had excellent studio manners. 


Barnaby

And then along comes Barnaby……. Another rescue, 2 years old, NO manners whatsoever, absolute disaster in the studio, bumps into giraffes and knocks them over, sits on half finished work, deliberately knocks tools off the workbench and to top it all off…….eats things in plastic!!!!!!!!

But he is great company and we are working on manners.
