Best Seat in the House
Dimensions: 15" h x 8" w x 11" d
Edition Size: 40
The best seat in the house is the one closest to the wine. Yet how close can one get? This sculpture attempts to answer this somewhat ridiculous question. Like many of the sculptures in the "Wine Lovers" series, this is another whimsical look at our intimacy with wine. The wine lover is so taken by the wine experience that he's one with the wine glass. You can easily picture him being filled with his favorite vintage. For those desiring a little extra, a limited special edition (the 10 “artist proofs” for this series) is available with a bronze bottle "filling" him up.
After making several sculptures incorporating wine glasses integrated with the figure standing, I felt a strong urge to set those sculptures so the glass was standing upright and the human figure was off the ground. I think our minds yearn to set familiar objects in their natural position.
