Imagine my unbridled excitement at being accepted in the Toyota Sculpture Exhibition. Last year I was lucky to attend to see the wonderful Sam Menzies and Robyn Rich exhibit their work so was honored to be amongst such good company. Wow - I'm playing with the big kids now.
Alas - on the weekend (and 4 days before delivery of my piece), I came home from the market to find my sculpture haliospinosa pluradactyla in pieces. Damaged. Beyond repair. (I blame the cat). Needless to say their was much hand wringing, many tears, and quite a bit of swearing in front of the children.
Monday morning arrived finding me in a casting frenzy and long story short .... today i delivered the new improved version ready for the opening next week.
The moral of the story is : Don't leave your precious fragile bony things where the cat can jump on top of them, and ... it feels really good when something goes terribly wrong and then you're able to fix it. You can visit the exhibition til march ...
