Douglas Maccardini “Rocket Bot”

“Rocket Bot” Mixed Media Sculpture, ~ 12″ tall Douglas Maccardini $75 I wonder if Douglas Maccardini thought of this as he created this brave traveler.  To paraphrase Elton John: And I think it’s gonna be a long long time Till touch down brings me round again to find I’m not the man they think I […]

John Makowski “Pot Head”

“Pot Head” John Makowski Mixed Media Sculpture Mostly Metal, ~ 12″ x 12″ $99 Hey you “Pot Head” what are you up to?  This bespeckled guy by John Makowski seems to be thumbing his nose at the world.  Doesn’t care what you think.  Of course you think –  his bark is bigger than his bite […]

Douglas Maccardini “Steam Bot”

“Steam Bot” Douglas Maccardini ~ 7″ x 6″ Mixed Media Sculpture $100 Thinking of what to get for Father’s Day?  I think any Dad would love this “Steam Bot” by Douglas Maccardini.  Douglas built this piece on a sort of wagon with wheels that turn.  It has fins like a muscle car, a tall smokestack, […]

Jacquelyn Lowry “Birds of a Feather”

“Birds of a Feather” Jacquelyn Lowry Ceramic Sculpture, ~ 7″ x 7″ $50 A relatively small sculpture that packs a full load of story and shows the fine creativity and skill of Jacquelyn Lowry.  I’m not certain if this scene is from known mythology, but I would not be surprised if it’s from Jacquelyn herself. […]

Douglas Maccardini “Tandem Bots”

“Tandem Bot” Douglas Maccardini Mixed Media Sculpture ~ 12″ x 11″ $65 I think our newest artist at the Joyful Jewel, Douglas Maccardini, is an “art comedian” because his work always brings a chuckle.  There is a good dose of nostalgia working too as you recognize recycled parts.  This bicycle built for two has one […]

Jacquelyn Lowry “From the Vineyard”

“From the Vineyard” Jacquelyn Lowry Ceramic, with Underglazes & Oil, ~ 8″ x 20″ $300 For Earth Day instead of featuring a succulent plant or a well-aging tree, I decided to show you this human being, a goddess intimately sculpted by Jacquelyn Lowry to celebrate the vineyards of life.  In her delicate condition, she connects […]

Barbara Thompson “Water Bowl”

Water Bowl Barbara Thompson Glass Sculpture, ~ 16″ high x 12″ round at the bowl $40 It’s time, finally, to put out this beautiful sculpture for the birds to bathe in!  Of course, I say finally, as it is a beautiful bright blue-skied day and the rain-produced water is drying up.  I can just see […]
