koru # 150

To be honest, I'm not sure there is any way for me to explain this piece except to say that it is part of an installation and performance piece called The Due Return now showing at Santa Fe's Center for Contemporary Arts through July 11, 2011. Really interesting stuff, and definitely an experience. If you're local, check it out.

koru #149

Wild bird seed. This took longer than just about every other koru I've done to date and required tweezers and lots or sorting.

koru #148

Tin can luminary. Note to self: next time make sure the water in the can is actually frozen through before hammering. Look for another attempt once the other can finishes freezing.
