The Turning Tops

During my residency at the Works in Newark, OH I was expected to create a body of work for display. Moving past the clear armaments of Archetypical I decided to concentrate on varying themes of a repetitive form. This eventually drove me to idea of a child’s spinning top with its plethora of representations. My original intention was to attach glass forms to the top and bottom of rather large round found or fabricated objects; hub caps, large saw blades, wagon wheels. Unfortunatly given certain venue constraints and the surprising difficulty in finding such objects I chose rather to focus on color combinations and effects, something that I had previously only given thought in my production objects. This did however work to my interest as the duties of the residency had improved my consistency with objects and had given me a fill pallet of colors to play with. Thus was born Precarious Potential, and its myriad of some what ironic objects. While I have chosen to give this particular work a rest it is an idea that I will evolve, once I find the requisite parts. Enjoy
