Sculpture Found on 6/16/2012

So Far we have received only one return from all the sculptures we released.

We got the following back via email on 6/16/2012
I found one of your driftwood artwork pieces in sandy hook, no today.  It is by Koby.  It is very pretty.  I will put it in my garden.  Thanks.
 We went through the pictures and found the sculpture in question along with the artist and his dad:

Results from Day TWO 6/10/2012

Day Two was just as much fun. We were pretty beat so we arrived a bit later in the morning, but there were very few people there early in the day.  By noon the place was packed and there was a steady flow of people wanting to make their own sculpture.

People made some more great pieces, and it got more challenging for the artists as the cool pieces of wood were used up.

At about 3:00PM Kate got the great idea to close-up shop and concentrate on handing out the sculptures for people to pitch into the sea. Many of them added their own messages to the pieces - yet another transformation of the wood.

If we do it again.... Day one will be all about making the sculptures, while Day 2 will focus on encouraging people to toss them into the harbor. Ahhh we live we learn.

I love this one... she put the height of all her friends on the stick along with a message.

Results from Day ONE 6/9/2012

We had a great time, and an amazing response from the first day of the festival. Many Many people were interested and stopped by to make some really nice sculptures. Everything from works of art that took hours to angry rants that only took a few minutes.

They used the sun to burn the wood, markers, saws, strings, wood pegs, you name it, they did it. Some of my favorites were the people who used a natural part of the wood like a branch or a knothole as the basis of their work. 

Check out "Shoot the Moon" for example....

Here are just SOME of the pictures of the many great pieces that were done.

Kate and Tim at the end of the day with some of day one sculptures

Olly and Dave were there early and did the first 2 sculptures.

It takes a steady hand to draw with sun and a magnifying glass...

Shoot Da Moon one of tim's favorites

This guy went all out and missed his ferry.

Kid doing a launch.

One of Kate's favorites. The kid jumped on the board and wanted to make a surfboard. I suggested he trace his feet, and he did, but what funky feet!
