Where is Thumbkin?

This is the first of my Thumbkin series... I hope to do many more! I was inspired by the childhood song by the same title. It currently resides in the College of Charleston's Sottile Sculpture Garden.

Confounded Foundations

This is my first carpet padding piece... The material caught my eye in Home Depot, and I simply had to have it, for I immediately had an image of what I wanted to do with it. I carted 2 big rolls of it around in the the back of my car for the greater part of my senior year of high school, but it wasn't until the end of my 1st year at college that I finally figured out how to make it do what I wanted it to do. I like to think it's the first of many.

Combination Cultivation (deux)

This is my most recent sculpture... inspired by the piece in my previous post. It is a chair of sorts- perhaps a bit more like a jungle gym.
