Stick (Twig) Art 011316

Small twigs, about 3 inches, cut into stick figure shapes, fastened together. One seated holding the other one that is leaping with arms high in the air.

Found some old images of early artwork.

Flat cuts and minimal shaping are telltale  signs of the first years.

Keeping track and remembering is why this blog was begun. So here is a little (about 3 inches tall) example of a twig sculpture made years ago.

Recently some photos (yes, actual photographs) were found. May have to take digital pics of the photos to keep up to date.

  1. Whittled or not, these stickies project a wonderful interaction. I’m always amazed that you can see potential in a stick lying on the ground. To me it would be just a stick on the ground, or maybe a stick in the mud.

    1. Thanks for the comment and complement. You do with words what I do with sticks! Guess it’s what makes us us!

      1. Ah, but your art sticks around! Thankfully! John packed most of the Christmas mobiles yesterday. He usually keeps one or two out all year.

      2. Yes my work may be tangible but words and stories stick around too! Also stories often get better over time!

  2. So, how long ago was this?

    1. Not exactly sure how long ago it was. Probably 15 years or so.

  3. They are so beautiful and it is truly said there is beauty in everything, we have to just see it 🙂

    1. So true! There is much beauty in your comment as well! Thanks for your kindness and wisdom. 🙂
