SEEDLING

Whidbey Island artist Sue Taves, blends a unique combination of movement, and spirit, into each of her sculptures. “Seedling” is part of a new series of work celebrating the exuberance of spring growth, resembling a flowing marble form of a new sprout emerging from the earth.

 Originally from the Midwest, Sue transplanted to California in 1990, and began sculpting stone seriously after taking a series of sculpture classes in the Bay Area. In 2004 she moved to Whidbey Island and began sculpting larger scale work. She loves to transform rigid and unyielding stone, into soft, and fluid lines, making the stone irresistible to touch.

 In the past 17 years Sue has explored working in harder materials such as granite and basalt as well as increasing the scale of her sculpture.  She also recently spent a month at an international art studio in Italy, working on marble pulled from a quarry only a few miles away. 

 Although often inspired by a particular stone, Sue also creates work in series, using her sculpture to explore specific themes relating to the physical world around us, such as “Wind” and “Waves.” This sculpture is for sale for $9800.
