The Gleeful Horse by Alise Muok

Remember the Gleeful Horse? Here he is, still smiling, by the talented Alise Muok. I love the unravelling ribbons and how he looks like he belongs to the world of old toys and games.

You can see some of Alise’s science-related art and read about her microbial research at alisemuok.com.

Lovers’ Lane coloured

Here’s the first piece of the coloured version of Lovers’ Lane. It will be an edition of eight. I haven’t decided yet whether to stick with blue/green for all of them or vary the colours.

Jack

Meet Jack, the new hare around here. He’ll be going to the foundry soon. ‘Here’ is, by the way, Australia. We moved back a few months before Covid happened, so had time to settle in before battening down the hatches.

Pond progress 2

Not quite finished cosmetically but fit for purpose, as it now has tadpoles — couldn’t get a pic of them, though.

New Work

Two new bronze pieces, “Lovers’ Lane” and “Bluebird”. When I first made the model for Lovers’ Lane it wasn’t holding anything, just gesturing in the air — then eventually the second mask came along. Bluebird’s colour is a pigmented patina. I want to get some better photos, but these will do for now.
