The blue figure on the left was a casting inspired by a wood figure fashioned from a scrap I made in junior high school woodshop. I was going to call the piece "Scraps," until it was point out to me that the figure has a humanlike form. It became "Standing Tall." After I cast several more of these figures I noticed that when I put them together in different positions, they began to display attitude.

The Conversation is one of the many configurations possible for this piece or pieces.

Earthrise was inspired by a photo taken by Astronaut Alexander Gerst who daily published images to Facebook from the International Space Station.
