A Welcome Addition

Mr. Man and I visited an art show by Matt Johnson at Open Square a few weeks back, and I *may* have started panting when I saw one of the pieces in the show. More on that in a minute. But first, check out how amazing the metal sculpture looks in Open Square's fourth floor gallery space:
And now, for the little metal baby we're bringing home. It's official name is 'Coils #2".  But I think we should probably think of another name? Cause otherwise it sounds like we're calling it.......*number two*.
Our baby weighs about as much as a baby pachyderm.  I have no idea how we're going to get it home!

  1. That's a pretty amazing piece you got there... makes me want to touch it. But, seriously though, what is the best way to display sculpture at home? Where will you guys show it off?

  9. Congratulations on your new addition. What a fabulous piece! I've always wanted to purchase one of a kind art from an actual gallery. Now I'm even more inspired to do so.
