Marji and I attempt to put aside one week per year during which we collaborate on an outdoor sculpture for our growing sculpture collection. Traditionally this is always an outdoor sculpture, in non-traditional materials and in large scale. We both drop all regular work and direct our attention to this project.
The concept started in 2009 and we completed projects in 2009, 2010 and 2011. We missed 2012, and 2013 and were excited to be able to return to the tradition this year. We have been collecting ideas for awhile.
We now have gracing various locations in our woods, 13 more "trees" constucted of aluminum flashing and PVC pipe.
Marji has blogged extensively about the project, construction techniques and earlier designs over on her blog, Ashbee Design. Check it out.
