My Corner of The World...
Last Monday night (November 10th) the Fiske Free Library here in town sponsored an evening with painter and sculpter, Ernesto Montenegro. It was a fabulous evening as he explained how he makes these beautiful bronze sculptures.
Here he explains how he makes a rubber mold - and shows the components.
Ernest Montenegro lives in Claremont and his work is in gallleries and cities around the world. His hand is on one of my favorite pieces that he brought with him that evening - it is called "Telephone Booth". There was another sculpture which I just loved - but, did not have my camera. It was a sculture he designed of witches that were hanging. What was so interesting is that when you looked at it from where you were sitting - it was totally different looking than when you went and looked at it up close.
And, a big thanks to Sharon Wood for sharing her photos with me - so that I could share them with you...
Next month the library will feature a man who rescues bears...I'll share about that evening with you when it happens.
