“Wine in Bottled Poetry” - Robert Louis Stevenson. [Quote on base of the bottle.]
“Head Over Heels” is one of the most satisfying sculptures that I have created. I love the simple flow of the body over the bottle. Sometimes I fret over a sculpture for months, unhappy with how it comes together. “Head over Heels” was sculpted in a few days and, fortunately, I was disciplined enough to leave it alone. A simple design is the best way to create beauty. I started this work with the desire of capturing the feeling of being all wrapped up in something. The approach I took came so easily and was so satisfying, I was almost surprised. With poetry, fine wine and art, simple elegance draws you in and eventually leads you to many subtle treasures within.
