A Raven for a Writing Desk
Bronze, open edition, 2017
12.5 cm / 5 ” long
‘In the business of creation you could use some motivation,’
Said the grim and ancient Raven from the Night’s Plutonian shore.
‘Are you lazing, are you drowsing, are you goofing off and browsing
On the internet again? Then think on this, and nothing more:
You’ll soon be dust, and what you haven’t written ere you pass Death’s door
Will be written — Nevermore!’
Finished at last. I’m proud of him. There’s been no shortage of work for a mourning bird this year. May next year be less grim.
He’s one of potentially three. I will cast the other two by order. Inquiries to [email protected]
Got patina. I’ll be showing this piece at the Lot 19 Spring Sculpture Prize in Castlemaine (Vic, Australia) on October 15-30. It should be a great show with indoor and outdoor sculptures, and non-functional ceramics as an extra feature this year.
