The Installation Goes Up!

dennis hanging birds

While I slave in front of the computer screen this week, D. is out on a ladder, making sure that his show looks perfect in time for the big opening day this Friday.

He spent several consecutive days hanging his porcelain birds and they look fabulous! So many people stopped to check them out, stare and ask him questions. I can’t wait until we have the lights up and it’s nighttime, and people can walk in and under the entire sculpture! Also at night you can’t see the microfiliment (fishing line) that they hang on – it just looks like a flock of amazing birds taking off from the center of the park.

The head of our gallery also encouraged him to install the project again in the spring for a major ceramics conference that is coming to Philadelphia  – a huge compliment for his first public work!

These photos are from the first day, so you can’t get a sense for the entire finished design. But I think you can see where he’s going with it, and how realistic and lively these pieces look as they’re hung. Watch out for more pics of the finished work later this week!!

  1. Wow this looks amazing already. I can’t wait to see the finished installation.

    And congrats on being asked back. That’s a really great compliment to his work.

  2. Even in the beginning stages of installation, the imagination is tickled and the eyes want to see more! The whole thing is just brilliant. I anxiously await pictures of the finished work. Way to go D!!
