Hand Carved Pods ..Bronze Tendrils

Here are two fine grained, fist size, greywacke pebbles creatively sculptured into original works of art.
The fine, compact composition of this material lends itself admirably to forms suggesting it is somewhat softer than it actually is. Organic softness is represented with subtly carved folds and ridges similar to the contours one would expect to see along a line of vertebrae, or muscles flexing under tight skin.
Sinuous bronze tendrils emerge from within the form, wind their way over the carved surfaces, imparting a sense of mysterious life, not of this world, neither vegetable nor animal. Differences blend in these unique sculptures leaving the observer wondering where sensuous pods such as these would evolve.
