One of These Things

A  L  O  H  A !
Good Morning


"All works of nature created 
by God in heaven and 
on earth are 
works of sculpture. "
                     Benvenuto Cellini

 "The essence of a sculpture 
must enter on tip-toe,
 as light as animal 
footprints on snow."
                         Hans Jean Arp

“Sculpture and painting 
have the effect of
 teaching us manners
abolishing hurry.”
                    Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The ultimate goal of the sculptor
 is to capture the essence of the figure, 
that person's individual message, 
through the pose that 
comes from within. "
                               Robert G. Breur

"Everyone sees 
what you appear to be, 
few experience 
what you really are." 
                Niccolo Machiavelli

Love that duck.

Jens Hamn said...

it's fun, I had the idea of a duck sculpture that moves in one place and then in another !! :)
the sculpture is impressionnate detail, I am sensitive to that!

William Kendall said...

Beautiful sculptural work, and such pretty duckies!

Teresa said...

I love the sculptures. They do look better fed and plumper than the wild ducks. Perhaps you need to share your bread with the wild ones.

Ducks always good.

Such a wonderful post! I agreed with a couple of those quotes...that sculpture should be like foorprints in the snow, in a sense, and be about the essence of the subject. Nice finish with the real duck!

Karen S. said...

These are lovely captures, each expression is delightful. I enjoyed all of your quotes but the last one really hits the mark for me!

Linley S said...

That last quote is oh so true, lovely captures

Cloudia said...
