I want to tell a story with my sea turtle conservation sculpture, even if it is a story that most people would like to not think about. People drive motor boats at speed on the ocean and inner coastal waterways and do not see the sea turtle, manatee, whales, dolphins that they maim or kill. I want my beautiful cast glass works to draw viewers in so that they become advocates for wildlife protection. We can no longer be blind. We cannot simply “not notice”. We must become true stewards of our world, or the beautiful, complex world as we know it will disappear.
i am honored to announce that this work – “You’re Killing Me : Oceanic Assassins – Propellers and Plastic” has been juried into the Artists for Conservation 2017 Virtual Annual Show in conjunction with their 10th Annual Juried Art Exhibit and the Artists for Conservation Festival. Thank YOU!
The last chapter of the Cycle of Life project has begun. I am loading the last kiln with hatchlings and sea turtle eggs and head for the east coast in a few days to begin the assembly. HAPPY HAPPY TURTLE DANCES!!!
