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 scott@scottradke.com. 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 scott@scottradke.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.

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!
