    Metalsmith Benchtalk with sculptor Kevin Caron of Arizona

    in Art

    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday April 9th, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST is sculptor Kevin Caron.


     


    We invite you to listen and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  


     


    Kevin Caron is a sculptor from Phoenix, Arizona. He has created more than 40 private and public commissioned works which are on display across the United States. His public art  sculpture Hands On won 17th Annual Best of the West Arts & Culture Award for 2009. He works primarily in fabricated steel.


     


    Caron was born on February 2, 1960. He moved to Arizona with his family in 1973. He served six years in the US Navy, where he worked in machine shops, and aircraft maintenance yards. He was honorably discharged in 1983.


     


    He managed a car repair shop, and in between jobs, built his own vehicle. His career as a sculptor was inspired by his work on a privacy screen. When he had completed the screen, he visualized a fountain made from the same material. Caron became a full-time artist in 2006.


     


    As he launched his art career, he also began a YouTube channel, adding a video each week. By August 2013, the channel had more than 300 videos, more than 15,000 subscribers and 5 million views. He lists M.C. Escher and Antoine Pevsner among his design inspirations.

    Norman Pirollo - Wood Sculptor

    in Art

    Ottawa sculptor Norman Pirollo uses wood as his primary medium, drawing inspiration from its inherent beauty.  Born in Toronto and raised in Montreal, he pursued studies in the technology sector. Norman also began to explore art and working with wood as a medium. He pursued alternative studies to master this form of art and today he creates wood art in all forms ranging from sculpture to wall art and one of a kind studio furniture.
    Norman continually challenges himself with new techniques and processes, which result in clean, contemporary works celebrating the natural organic forms surrounding us in our environment. His contemporary styled sculptural and wall art are a creative combination of subtle yet dramatic features where his unique designs incorporate unusual graphics found in vibrant woods. His sculpture and wall art are composed of figured woods with unique characteristics to which he infuses colour to depict an image he envisions.
    Norman is a member of various art associations and has been the recipient of arts awards as well as participating in numerous juried art shows.  His work has also been featured in the following books:  "Studio Furniture: Today's Leading Woodworkers", "Wood Art Today 2" and "500 Cabinets" as well as various international magazines. Most recently Norman has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious NICHE Award 2013 in his category.
    Norman currently fulfills his quest of creating unique studio furniture through Refined Edge Design. Norman also provides instruction through WoodSkills which he developed to make available the knowledge and expertise he has acquired over the years.

    a Theory of Parenting -Central Park Conservatory Garden

    in Photography

    The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.


    It is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French, and English. The Garden's main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. 


    The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.


    A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.


    On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.


    spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips,  all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.


    In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.


    To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.


    There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays.


    A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.


    At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.


    The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. 


    The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.


    For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.

    Randy Cooper, Famous Shadow Sculptor and Caregiver to His Mother

    in Caregiving

    Randy Cooper has had many jobs and careers, ranging from lumberjack in the woods of the Pacific Northwest to serving as a special education teacher, from an operator at a Westinghouse plant to a developer and teacher of the Total Quality Management program at two of their facilities. As an artist, he credits his attention to detail to this latter experience at Westinghouse. Randy's mother was a master carver of birds and gunstocks, and one of his sisters is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and author. It wasn’t until Randy was nearly 50 that he discovered his own penchant for art. His first experience with art education was taking a 6-week course with sculptor Wren Prather-Stroud. He also attended a week-long course with Tuck Langland at the Scottsdale Artists' School. After working successfully in clays, artificial stone, and bronzes, Randy discovered wire mesh, which soon became his medium. He began creating intriguing and magical sculptures in wire mesh and has developed all of the techniques that he uses in making his “Shadow Sculptures” on his own. These are forms created in wire screen that cast lovely shadows on the wall when lit with a light source. Indeed, sometimes the shadows seem to show more detail than the original sculpture and instill a feeling of magic into the creation. These “Shadow Sculptures” have been sweeping the United States and the world for the past few years, highlighting many private collections throughout the world, and Randy Cooper has become a major force among America's contemporary artists. Randy works as a full-time sculptor and lives in New Mexico with his wife, Susan, a former environmental engineer who is now a writer and an artist who has worked primarily in pastels, oils, and acrylics.
