ArtPrize 2010 Entry, or Making the Really Large Vessel
For the ArtPrize competition in 2010 I've decided to attempt to make a raised and chased vessel larger than I've ever done before. I don't know for certain that I can do the 48 inch disk I'm going to take one, but I think I can. I also don't know how much time this will take to complete. I am allocating several months from my work schedule for it. In spending this much time on one piece I do also see it as valuable to the direction of my career beyond just an entry for ArtPrize. I'm not into gambling so I don't count on winning an award, but I'm going to give it my best effort.
Over the course of the next several months I will keep updating this album with progress on the piece and commentary on the challenges encountered. Be sure to keep stopping back to see it develop.
Here is a follow up note. Thanks to everyone who came out for ArtPrize 2010 and voted for my piece. I didn't quite make it into the final round. However, I did really well, staying in the Top 25 the majority of the time and finishing somewhere between 11th and 25th. (ArtPrize doesn't report exactly where people placed beyond the top 10 winners.) At the current time, Radiant Efflorescence is still for sale. The William Zimmer Gallery will be showing it at the SOFA Chicago show Oct. 31st - Nov. 3rd., 2013.
