    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.

    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.

    About Fred:


    Fred Crist established FACrist/Metalsmith in 2007. He is an educator in great demand whose work is widely collected and exhibited. The following is an excerpt from his 2011 interview with Iceforge.


    “Forging metal has always been my choice of material and process as a sculptor and craftsman. From the time I was first introduced to this direct manipulation of metal as a student at Philadelphia College of Art in 1974, (under the direction of Jack Andrews) I was captivated by its potential as a sculptural medium.


    Upon graduation, with a BFA in Sculpture, I began working at Samuel Yellin Metalworkers in West Philadelphia in 1977. This studio, renowned for its excellence in hand forged architectural works dating back to 1906, was to be my training ground for the next eleven years. Here I began as an apprentice and worked my way up to Head Blacksmith. While at the Yellin Studio I assisted and lead on many major projects, involving reproduction of original Yellin work as well as restoration of works in need of repair."

    LIVE Interview with Sculptor Niki Sabet

    in Entertainment

    Media Nite Radio welcomes to the airwaves Sculptor, painter, photographer, muse, model Niki Sabet.    Niki Sabet is blazing her unique trail as a multi-medium artist.   Born in Iran, Sabet grew up between France and Canada. She was writing poetry at seven and was a featured student poet at The National Education Convention. At eight, Sabet was wood carving, and her sculptures were showcased at The City Art Fair. Upon graduating high school at 16, she was signed to the prestigious Ford Modeling Agency. Sabet traveled the world, establishing herself as an international model. She spent years living all over Asia in cities such as Hong Kong, Bangkok and Boracay Island. She later lived, for a time, in Europe and South Africa.   Upon her return to North America, she studied Interior Architecture at Ryerson University in Toronto. She quickly realized her passion was in creating with more of a hands-on approach rather than the world of academia.   In search of new inspiration, Sabet relocated to Los Angeles, California and soon thereafter made Silverlake’s well-known La Fonderie Atelier her primary studio. Her secondary studio is in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It is there where she began working on her first monumental bronze sculpture for 50 Varick (the Tribeca Film Festival building) in NYC. She currently resides between Los Angeles and New York.   When film and fashion industry movers and shakers began taking notice, Sabet found herself being lured back into the entertainment industry by photographers and directors. However, now her creative peers are regarding her as a muse for their endeavors.

    Joy Keys chats with Micro Sculptor Willard Wigan

    in Current Events

    Special Guest: Willard Wigan is a sculptor from Birmingham, England, who makes microscopic art. Willard’s micro-sculptures are so minute that they are only visible through a microscope. Each piece commonly sits within the eye of a needle, or on a pin head.
    Willard’s artwork has been described by many as “the eighth wonder of the world”. Such accolade resulted in him being honoured by HM. Queen Elizabeth II with an MBE for his services to art, which was presented by HRH. Prince Charles in July 2007.
    Owners of Willard’s work now include:  HRH. Prince Charles, Sir Elton John, Sir Philip Green, Lord Bath, Mike Tyson and Simon Cowell to name but a few.  Willard’s latest piece, the Coronation Crown was requested by HRH Queen Elizabeth II in tribute to her celebration to her Diamond Jubilee. http://www.willard-wigan.com
     Special Guest: Horologist Stephen Forsey partner in the Greubel Forsey watch making company. In 1999 Greubel and Forsey began working on a new generation of tourbillon specifically designed to improve the timekeeping of the mechanical watch. Four years later they unveiled "Greubel Forsey" and stunned horological aficionados with their innovative Double Tourbillon 30°, a timepiece clearly demonstrating their twin goals of innovation and excellence. http://www.greubelforsey.com
    Art Piece 1 is collaboration between Robert Greubel, Stephen Forsey and Willard Wigan, and features one of Wigan’s micro-sculptures, observable through special optics.

    The Spirit of Art

    in Culture

    CAN ART MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR LIVES?


    "What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one's life and will hopefully touch others as well. This is art in its highest form. Those moments of enlightenment are what I continue to live for." Michael Jackson


    “You give of your talent, of your ability… the talent that was given you by the Heavens. That’s why we’re here, to bring a sense of escapism in time of need. And, uh, if you’re a painter you paint; if you’re a sculptor, you sculpt; if you’re a writer, you write; if you’re a songwriter, you give songs; if you’re a dancer, you give dance. You give people some love and some… some bliss and some escapism, and to show that you truly care from the heart, and be there for them. Not just from a distance, but show you really care. You know, take the long mile and be there for them. And that’s what I did, and many others who cared and helped. And it’s an important thing.”  Michael Jackson
