Around You

$51.95

...just the nearness of you.

I wanted to sculpt a young couple, finding romantic love  --  the butterflies and uncertainty, the chemistry and electricity - discovered when you're in each other's presence.  I wanted the piece to be tender and intimate, elegant and quiet.  Since the pose is derived from dance, I also wanted it to appear to have movement as you look at different angles.
My challenge was to carve completely in the round, so that from every view, you have a different understanding... you see variations.  There's no correct way to position the piece.
There are three touch points - their fingers on both hands, and the tops of their heads.  I like this bit of connection - the tingly excitement and shared energy that comes from moments together with a new love.  --  Susan Lordi
