T BARNY SCULPTURE NEWS
Today was the first trip for my new pup, Sander, to ride to town. I had errands to do and he was anxious to go. My sculpture takes me on the road at times. In the past, my black lab "Rufus" traveled with me to Stone Symposiums, Art Receptions and to pick up supplies. This weekend I'm off to Cambria. I was asked to be the "honored juror" for the Stone Symposium. Sander's too young to make this trip but will be ready for next time. Talk about travelin' ... I have my large mobius bronze, CATENAX, being crated for its' travels to Austrailia. Interesting the challenges that arise from crating. The picture above shows the sculpture crate and pedestal crate being shipped to Chicago. Typically my shipper crates my pieces in plywood and fir which is fine for the USA. However, the wood first needs to be treated and date stamped for international travel. A crate can be built with pre-treated wood but can't be shipped until the date on the stamp. Good to know.
