GOURDS - MOBILES - CARDS
The Taller Sudoeste
Most of the art work done in The Taller Sudoeste de Calabazas y Mobiles uses natural materials; Coyote Gourds, Mesquite Pods, branches and pieces of dry desert wood. Thus, the work schedule in the Taller is tied to the seasons of the year. In the Spring and Summer the effort is toward showing the work by visits to arts and crafts festivals. Autumn brings trips into the desert to harvest the material that nature has produced during the growing seasons. Much of the art work is created during the long nights and cold gray days of Winter with a Bach concerto, Miles Davis or Vivaldi, the snap of an open fireplace, and the sound of rain on the roof as a backdrop.
Mobiles are the Gypsies of Artistic expression.
They live intimately with the wind, and
To flash their gaudy brilliance will
Spin and twirl and dance and sway with the slightest hint of breeze. But just
Below the flash and twirl and spin is an exquisite fragile balance that
Is the soul of their sensitivity.
