If you’re like me and have been waiting forever for your own Scott Radke commission, my friends, our time has come! For the last month or so, Scott has been on a tear, striking off many a collector’s bucket lists with owls, dogs and — get this — an ELEPHANT. I figured Scott had done it all, but that … that’s a first.
Fashioned from clay and burlap, the sculptures all stand around the 20-inch mark. If you’re looking to get something done by Scott, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Scott will also be exhibiting with Kathie Olivas and Stephen Webb at Stranger Factory in April 2013, so be sure to mark your calendars for that, as well!
I know I’ve said this dozens of times, but Scott Radke’s work just amazes me. It’s curious, emotive, delicate and beautiful. For me, it promotes a feeling of peace and balance and if I had to choose only one sculpture to grace my work space, it’d be my Radke.
With that said, if you’ve been waiting to add a Radke sprite to your creative space, now’s your chance. New to Scott’s shop for August is “Untitled” (pink) and “Untitled #2” (green). The former stands 12 inches and is available for $375, while her green companion is 10.5 inches and $350.
Guaranteed one of these have given your heartstrings a little tug, or — at the very least — have made you stop a moment to stare. Enjoy it. And if either is ‘the one’ for you, drop Scott a line at email@example.com … they’re a steal and you’d be doing your soul good. Trust me!
Scott Radke’s been on a tear recently. Totems, little ladies, raccoons … and now a covey of quail. This would definitely be one of those ‘cover my eyes and point’ situations as these fall into that grey area with art multiples: conceptually, they’re an edition. Yet the sculpts are each handmade and (clearly) unique, giving them all the same appeal as a one-off. In other words: they all look great, are priced great, and the only not-so-great thing is having to choose.
The quail each measure 14″ tall by 8″ wide (give or take) and retail for $350. Not bad, right? And since tomorrow’s Friday, I encourage you indulge in a wee bit of spoiling of yourself. Half of them have already sold (yeah, get on it!) and only numbers 2, 3, 6 and 8 are left. Photos of each quail can be seen on Scott’s site here.
New from Scott Radke is Raccoon #2, a new, whimsical clay sculpture. Covered in sprayed burlap and featuring a hand painted clay face, the freestanding Raccoon #2 (here’s #1) stands 18″ and is 13″ wide.
He’s available on Scott’s site as we speak. Shoot him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to make adoption arrangements!
New from Scott Radke is an ensemble of three hauntingly beautiful ladies who are now available for purchase. Looking pretty in pink, each whimsical sprite is crafted from burlap, clay and twigs and stands about 26″ high. For pricing and availability, contact Scott at email@example.com.
Scott Radke recently dazzled us yet again with another one of his lovely maidens, revealed last week via his Facebook page. Another masterpiece of burlap, clay and twigs, she looks to stand at least two feet. Predictably, her haunting gentleness caught someone’s gaze and she sold immediately. Scroll for more photos of stroll through the forest.
Yeah, so like I was saying: Scott Radke doesn’t waste any time. Following last week’s teasers of his second totem commission for actress/producer Nathalie Rheims, comes the next (and final) creatures for the piece, which look to be a rabbit and goddess. I love the movement of this piece and the liveliness of these creatures despite the totem being a static sculpture. The hunch of the raccoon from all of the weight, the goddess teetering on top … just incredible. Very excited to see it all painted up. More photos to come!
Wow. A week after Scott Radke shipped out his enormous animal totem commission to Morgan Spurlock, he gets right to work on another, this one for actress/producer Nathalie Rheims. Kicking it off with a snail base and raccoon rider, I’m super curious as to what other creatures this second totem will produce. More soon!
