I love red.
I recycled a big piece of styrofoam to form the core of this sculpture I made for Marianne. The red helps keep the spirits up during the cold of winter.
I love the heart shape, especially with a little twist of the tail, which I call the "Marianne's Heart". Back in the '80 we used it as a logo for our screen printing business. You can see it in the old sign that is now on my studio wall.
In the foreground is the "Tango Dancers". Last week I cut them up and brought them as excess oversized luggage to Thailand where they will be cast in bronze and stainless steel.

Having gotten the shape I wanted I used the big Heart as a mold to make a copy. I changed the position so it became the "Tumbling Heart". It became a 60th birthday present from her family for a good friend of ours.
We installed it at their Martha's Vineyard house Christmas morning. It was fun to have both my daughters and Chris's husband Barney help with installation.
