Art Festival Schedule for 2018

From Artist to Mentor,

to Mentor the Artist...

I'm coming back to the Art Festivals for 1 more year,

but my new work has a twist, it's not my work it's now Sam's!!!

Sam Seigel came to me 6 years ago and asked if he could help me make my copper sculptures.  I asked him what he thought he could do, He said

"I can make anything out of anything."

So I said OK and gave the young man some tools and a workstation, I tried to teach along the way as I critiqued and sculpted, both the work and the worker.

6 years have gone by, and his talents are proven,

in the work we've been doing.

  So, when it came time for me to retire, I realized that "the work" did not have to retire, nor did Sam, only me.

So from Artist to Mentor, I became,

and now I Mentor the Artist

The New Work is Fantastic...

It's as similar to my past work, and it is as unique, as my past work.

From the hands of my protege,

Sam has developed his own style and is taking it on the road this summer.

I am taking a break from retirement to help Sam in doing these first shows with him and introduce my customers to him and his work.

I look forward to seeing many old friends and collectors of my work, as I, 'In Retirement' continue in the future to be a Mentor to Sam and AJ's Copper Garden.
