observation I made the Twins.
The change I see is people taking the image and experience of my sculpture and making it their own in a variety of ways.
My sculpture is a point of departure for them; from which they begin creating from it their own.
Seeing this I decided to take their position of the observer of my own work by taking it back and making it my own again in any position I chose!!! I get to be the creator the observer and the manipulator.
"I like the Twins but it would be much better if they were sitting by a stream some where. "
'Not a problem! I can put them any where I want; they're mine!!'
I hope the sculptor doesn't mind but I just couldn't help my self. 😁

I didn't walk away with it though because the property owner would have upon seeing it gone " oh great you found me a beautiful stone Bob" and I would have had to say yes and walk away with out it.
That is why I'm making my own stone and if any one is going to walk away with this one they will be gladly paying me for it! Finding beautiful stones and possessing them seems to be a very ancient human desire. Since I'm not finding but making these stones does this change anything ? I'm not copying any stones or rendering the likeness of a particular stone. I don't know what to call it.
It will be what it will be.
This may not be interesting to any one but it is where I spend my time and energy and you usually only see the outer skin of the work. It is a working from the inside out way of seeing. The form eventually appears. Come back if you care to and there will be more stages to see. Beautiful stones are for ever in my opinion. (sounds like a diamond commercial)

On top of the earth ball is a white dome that holds a 4foot tall tapered pointer. The house and the pointer are co-joined by a spring inside that dome. The slightest movement of the pointer will be indicated by movement of the house.
So often we look at art and never know how it was made. There is nothing conclusive here but it's how I put this art together. In the case of this series of Host and Guest it is clear to me how ever we treat the Host we are still all ways the Guest.

My sculpture Quartz Night is ready to go to North Benington,VT. sculpture show. It's made of steel and painted silver. At night there are solar lights that keep away the dark.
