My collaborator Ian Henderson has laid out the casting process used in the creation of our new sculptures quite nicely on his blog:

"Exquisite What?" now on exhibit

"Exquisite What?"
Ian Henderson and Clint Fulkerson
Fort Port Arts Community Gallery
300 Summer ST Boston, MA
March 12-April 16, 2010

Opening Reception:
Thursday, March 18, 2010 5:30-8pm

Artists' Presentation:
Friday, March 26, 2010 7:00pm

"Exquisite What?" brings the spirit of blind collaboration into sculptural process, as the Surrealists did for writing and drawing with their famous game, Exquisite Corpse.

The Art is viewed under magnification in enclosed containers, which resemble the handling boxes used by scientists and medical researchers. Visitors reach through openings in the cases to handle the work and examine it from all sides. These boxes allow for an intimate connection with the work while still protecting the objects.

By touching and inspecting the work, viewers will explore their surfaces in a playful, inquisitive manner that reflects the spirit of their creation.

Here are some images of the sculptures. I'm very pleased with the results of our hard work, and I encourage everyone to come out to the opening reception and our presentation or at least to see the show.

All twelve pieces exhibited are sterling silver and are at most 3"-4" long
