Steve Eichenberger Crows

Since boyhood I’ve explored far flung corners of the Pacific Northwest, and wherever I’ve gone I’ve enjoyed the company of crows and ravens.  My favorites are the big handsome ones that strut self-importantly about, full of bright-eyed curiosity.  They look right back at me looking at them—a look I’ve attempted to capture in this series.

I sculpted the originals in clay, from which I made molds to cast this collection.  Each piece is individually hand cast, burnished, and signed.

I hope you enjoy them.

John and Robin Gumaelius

For Robin and John Gumaelius, radio stories, history books, biking adventures, gardening notes, watching neighbors and strangers, parks, and cars are what inspire their unique ceramic and metal pieces. Robin and John’s sculptures are unusual combinations of birds and humans: bird heads or people with birds perched on their heads and other creatures with people heads. Their works are comical, bizarre and highly inventive. They are technically laudable because of their intricacy of forms, often monumental sizes, and complex decorative glazes. The finished pieces come alive as if Robin and John as if subliminally created. There seems to be a little magic in each piece.

Robin and John Gumaelius work together building their birds and figures with a fluid connection between clay and metal, beginning with clay slabs. When the pieces are leather hard, they paint with underglazes and then carve through the painted surface, into the white clay.

Greg Wilbur

Greg Wilbur

Raising is an ancient metalsmithing process that stretches malleable metal into striking contours. Using forged steel hammers, open and closed forms are created from sheets of bronze, brass, copper and silver. Physically demanding, this process requires hundreds, often thousands of repetitive blows, producing a modest amount of work from a single artist.
