The Donut Project - 2018
New work on display every Third Friday at Gallery + 78th St. Studios Cleveland
I love donuts. So it came as no surprise while sculpting the plate of donuts on the right that I tumbled to the idea that the hole-in-the-middle shape would be perfect to use as the matrix for every sculpture in my next series. And maybe the next group show, too. Here's the scoop:
Announcing a new collaboration:
Original Inner Tube Kid drawing (below) by artist, illustrator Angela Oster, who "creates criminally cute, odd and wonderful beings" was reproduced with permission as a sculpture for the Donut Project! So cute!! Thanks, Angela!
I like legs. With Valentine's Day in the wings, it seemed appropriate to add a heart.
Glow-in-the-dark glass-eyed ogre awaits paint.
Thanks to the wild pattern and neon colors, the donut is virtually invisible in this hanging fish which would look great in a doorway or window!
I enjoy the whiz-bang created when I use a pumpkin stem in unexpected places like this and in cupcakes. It messes with your perceptions. Not to mention that gorgeous hand painted glass eye. Not shown: he grew big feet.
Impossible to resist creating my own Minion.
Dad Bot & Kid Donut Hole Use them on your desk to catch stray paper clips.
Look at that glass eye...it's ocean blue and filled with the continents. This work is strongly magnetic too and will catch those stray paper clips on your desk!
This Flying Saucer spins on its base!
Collecting "bumper stickers" for the saucer was a world of fun! I imagined little green men shopping in backwoods tourist traps and affixing local vacation stickers to their ride! :)
Seven glass eyes double as the ship's windows and a huge shooter marble tops its dome.
