Changelings


                               Kerry is working on his new series, Changelings.

            ‘They are among us and as long as we keep them amused they may keep us around.’


                              This series covers a lot of ground from erotica to ‘bluecifer.’










The Fox is one example from the series. A fox is a small wily animal, the bane of anyone who has chickens. This Fox looks dapper, standing upright on his back legs, his tail bushy and neat, he stares brazenly at the viewer..


                               When the sculpting is done the Fox is off to the foundry.

The Foundry


For nearly 6 weeks Kerry has been away at the Foundry where it was cold and wet. Working there with the professionals he has continued with his big project, The Impala.

A lost Dutch Master.

The finished wax sculpture is covered in a clay shell and the wax is melted out. Molten bronze is poured in and when it has hardened, the casing is removed and the piece is ready to be finished.


Various Castings.

                                                     There is still much to be done.

The Glass House opening in Arizona


The Glass House opened on Sunday at the Rancho Linda Vista Gallery in Oracle Arizona. Everyone who came loved the bronzes which glistened and glowed in their well-polished beauty. People came from as far away as New Jersey and Texas and many places in between.



On St Patrick’s Day, Friday March 17, the new publication, The Glass House will be launched at the same Gallery. Be there and have your book of the series autographed by the artist himself. 



This is the third publication that we have done of Kerry’s bronze series. The others are Alchemy, golden dreams come true and The Frost Giants.

This is Kerry’s first show in Arizona and the enthusiasm of the crowd suggested this may not be the last.

The Impala



Kerry has been working on The Impala for nearly two years. It is much larger than the reality and is a beautiful animal covered in signs and symbols of the African continent and civilizations.




Creativity is an incredible thing and Kerry has explored African culture in many ways, some not as easy to identify as others. But he has enjoyed himself.

Washing,waxing and having fun..


To look their best bronzes need to be maintained, especially in a hot and humid climate. Recently Kerry had the pleasure of visiting a few of his bronzes in a private collection in Texas and he was quick to don rubber gloves and get down to business. Texans like to work hard and party later. My lips are sealed about the later.

Warialda HSC 2016


Seeing their art work hanging in a professional gallery is an excellent experience for young artists and for several years, after their exams have finished, the HSC Art students of Warialda High School have exhibited their final works at Ceramic Break Sculpture Park. We believe in encouraging young artists and their families and in November, family and friends were able to view the students' art work in one of our galleries. Congratulations to the students for an excellent show and thanks to Nerida, Barbara and Sharon for their time to organise and hang the work.

 
Visitors and artists.

What is happening at the Park


     
                  In place and playful the Crows need just a little paint and they will be finished.





It has been hectic at the Park over the last few weeks.  An opening, general organisation, welcoming new staff and fare-welling old. On that subject, more anon.

The opening was great. Robyne Berling's art was as beautiful as always, pleasing to the eye and joyful to the soul. The artist's talk by Peter Cannon was fabulous and gave us all a chance to discuss his approach and ideas. Peter's works were not easy to view, though some contained 'light' and maybe comic comments in a dark world. It wasn't a one way discussion either as he put this blogger on the spot to further define the question asked.. Phew..

The show is there for a few more weeks. If you like beauty and having your own ideas challenged, this is the show to see.
