Hi people. So, here's how my Polynesian Dancer came out.
I did a lot more work on her face too. Now she shows the thoughtful confidence I always knew she had. In the past my human figures have sold for $3000- $5000. I'd like to get at least $1500 for her. I have no idea what a gallery would put on her but it would be higher.
As for other stuff:
Okay-- I know what I said last week but I'm already changing it a bit. (As one of those flaky art types I do get a way with rather a lot of this kind of thing. Nice gig.) For one thing, as far as getting stuff over to Door County for the summer season- let's face it- I've already missed that boat. Another week or two won't make any difference. Also, my sister and her kids are coming into town for a visit right when I was planning on being gone. SO..... (and I think you'll like this even better anyway)
I decided to extend this "get an extra good deal/summer blowout" period until the end of the month and have an open house
Sun Aug 2nd!
This won't be one of those fancy wine and cheese deals (this is a welding shop people). It'll be more like me sitting in a lawn chair reading, working on my novel, possibly applying toenail polish, and visiting with whoever wants to hang out.
This way you can check out where I work (fair warning, welding shops, even arty ones = dirty, with sharp, rusty stuff laying around), and possibly pick-up a really sweet deal like --
A stained glass sun. These have usually sold for about $300- $325, but hey, at Casa Sue-- yours for $250.
(Edit to add: The sun on the right has been claimed, but I guess I would part with both if anyone wants the other one.)
I also have lots of mysterious odds and ends laying around that I'd be willing to part with. This is an old favorite of mine that resonates with some people, but so far no one with a lot of cash. I'd part with it for $150. It took a ton of time. If you're interested, I can tell you about its bizarre literary inspiration-- or not. Whatever.
This is a base for what I used to use for a light table for doing stained glass. It's bar height, and could be a cool addition to a kitchen, like an island maybe?? Anyway, I'd be happy if someone would give me like, $50 for it. (make offer)
This is actually pretty cool, as long as you don't have little kids or big dogs running around. It's a table base for a console table. A glass top would go on it and it is fine in a spot where it won't get bumped, but, unfortunately, wobbles if you do bump it. (Doesn't fall apart, but moves a bit.) It's really pretty though. (sighs) I'd let her go for, I don't know, $150?
Don't ask me what this thing is, but it's kind of cool looking right? Sort of Asian influence? It could be a cool plant stand, or maybe a really tall table base. I could cut it shorter if you're into that idea. Someone suggested it would look cool with a light inside it. Whatever on this. Make me an offer.
This is a pedestal that I've always liked. It's pretty modern, but wobbles if you knock into it. Come on, don't you need some thrilling adventure in your life? Make an offer.
I also have stuff around that is mine, but I might be talked into selling if someone really fell in love with...
And some stuff that's mine and not for sale, but may give you an idea of something you may want to commission (order).
Basically-- I'll have all the stuff I intend to bring over to Door County, plus odds and ends, plus, you know, me, and my cool shop. So you should definitely check this out. I only live about 40 minutes from downtown Minneapolis (in Elk River).
I'll post up more stuff as I get it made (I have lots of smaller stuff that's "in process"), and more details as we get closer to the end of the month.
As always, if something interests you, email me, because-- like last week (the heron gate) , some things go right away. First come first served.
