This was so much fun to create. I always have fun sculpting. I never conceive of a complete piece. I start working and don’t really know where I will end up. Usually, The piece starts with a boulder or large stone; then I go through my collection of steel tubing and small stones and start making things happen. I loose track of time and frequently jump up and down.
We Have To Stop Meeting Like This made me smile and jump as high as I could. I’m alone in my studio so it’s ok!
At first the piece looked a little space-like, but I didn’t want to call it anything related to science fiction. When I put the two granite stones on the ends of the spiral, and the straight tube and the stones touched, it anthropomorphized the sculpture and made it human.
We Have To Stop Meeting Like This popped into my head, and I knew the piece was finished because I couldn’t stop laughing.
