a new companion

Jean surprised me with this wonderful new sculpture last week in honor of our collaborative work Parallel Lives. Shiny Thing is a perfect execution of something she and I talk about all the time -- our tendency as artists and designers to be attracted to the next shiny thing, just like crows who feather their rookeries with tidbits and tinsel. She admitted that the working title was Krovarik. And just take a look at those gorgeous feet! Gotta love em.
