Public vs. Private

I’ve decided to keep applying to public art venues. I love working in all my mediums: sculpture, furniture, doors. I’ve made a living for the past 30 years on commission work for individuals. This is great. I get more contact with the client. Connection is vital. I don’t think I would still be doing what I do if I didn’t have my connections with the people I work with/for. I love the one-on-one thing.  Having said that, it seems like a good time in my career to start doing bigger projects. For now, one Public piece a year would be fantastic. This way I could continue doing my commission work and not feel so stressed about “how many”. I’ve just applied to a handful of “public art” around the country. Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I hope to create a giant sculptural clock tower for a building soon. Inside or out.
