The object maker.....



Still in the city, 905 Hay Street, Dynon Plaza. I was drawn by the series of beautifully crafted sculptures by English born artist Andrew Kay who casts his bronze sculptures in his own foundry. Reading Andrew's profile gave me a clearer idea of how his surroundings near the coast and native forests influence his art, I like it very much anyway but understanding his motivation is all the more enlightening. These ten whimsical sculptures were designed as a temporary exhibit from 2006 - 2008 but as we're now in 2013 and they're still there I'm guessing that this has become a permanent deal. I'm very much missing my little feline friend, they've moved :( so I was particularly drawn to the pussy cat watching the sardines leaping out of the tin, how cool is that! Hope your week has started well, happy Tuesday, take care.....

  1. I love that sweet cat too - these are all lovely bronzes and even better they're being (very likely) kept on permanently! So sorry you are missing your sweet feline friend (would you ever consider getting a cat of your own:). Beautiful photoseries for Monday!

  3. These all look so interesting. I especially like the pear sculpture. It appears to be telling a story much deeper than just a piece of fruit. But, that cat is pretty cute too.

  18. This sculptor has a delightful imagination Grace. I also like the one with the cat the best although the one with faces peering from the flower comes a close second.
