Ironically, I find steel to be quite flexible and forgiving as a material to work with. I came to metalwork just a few years ago and love the way steel can be shaped, merged or amended with found objects, changed and manipulated. The process is engrossing and challenging physically.
I am fascinated with birds, and see them daily where I live near the ocean. The first birds I made were needle felted and from tin cans. The steel birds are the beginning of a series I hope to make of different birds I’ve seen or see on a regular basis. Birds' homes are another fascination to me. Old tools and other metal objects are often the starting point for me, and I have begun to incorporate stone and granite into some of my other work. The steel and stone sculptures play with the ideas of whimsy and solidity, motion and stillness.
This is a cosy cottage designed by Will and built by Will, Kathy and friends, on the backshore of Peaks Island, just down the driveway from the ocean and backshore road.The cottage is about 450' from the ocean and rocky shore, and approximately a mile from the ferry, grocery store, and busier part of the island. There are several sandy beaches on the island also about a mile away from the cottage.
Two queen beds, one in the sleeping loft accessed by stairs, the other in the newly redone daylight basement. Open living room/dining area, with views of a pond to the south, and through the trees to the ocean at the north. Small but fully equipped kitchen, one bath with shower, and an outdoor shower as well.Two decks hug the cottage, one southerly facing for afternoon warmth and the other shady and cool. The cottage has wi-fi, and cell reception is fairly good; we can add you to our Microcel if your carrier is ATT for better reception.
Well behaved dogs welcome; there is a fenced yard shared by owners' home at the front of the property.
The cottage is currently rented indefinitely.
