'Ladybug' - Video Profile of Elizabeth Goluch, Metal Artist

Once again +Ben Proudfoot of Breakwater Studios has done a superb job of profiling this gifted artist. Another video well worth watching!

I have worked with Elizabeth for many years, most notably (and enjoyably) in producing our collaborative piece "Medusa" (Photographs here https://plus.google.com/+StevenKennard/posts/gGo6ttSLZHU ) and am a great admirer of this artist and her work.

Wow - bugs never looked so beautiful thanks to this amazing film and Elizabeth's amazing work! This film resonates so much with me as I'm so familiar with the techniques used because of my silversmith training. If only I was as talented as the wonderful Elizabeth :0)

Mother Earth - Third Voice in the Conversations with Makers Series

Breakwater Studios has profiled artist Louise Pentz in this third release in the series. +Ben Proudfoot has once again done a sensitive and masterful job at enabling this wonderful artist to tell her story. Just look at the faces on those figures!

Amazing - again beautifully made and inspiring, but I found this one so much more powerful. Louise's commitment to using her immense skill and experience to give voice to the voiceless was amazing and how that seems to have invigorated her and given her new purpose is just brilliant.

Terrific job everyone. It is a beautiful profile video, that's for sure. It is featured on the Collectors of Wood Art of America site as well as the American Association of Woodturners site.
It was tweeted by +Guy Kawasaki and was on some pretty major sites apart from the specialist ones mentioned above.

Official Trailer to the Series of 6 Conversations with Makers - "LIfe's Work"
https://vimeo.com/125964077

My own profile is being released on May 5th, so watch this space!

The Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council has written about this great series: (from http://www.nsdcc.ns.ca/news-opportunities/lifes-work-six-conversations-makers)
“Life’s twists, challenges, surprises, and possibilities have been captured by filmmaker Ben Proudfoot in a new series of short documentary videos called Life’s Work:  Six Conversations with Makers.   The trailer forLife’s Work, containing clips from all six videos, is being released today.
Life’s Work introduces viewers to six of Nova Scotia’s master craftspeople.   Through the videos we get to visit them in their studios, and learn a little about their lives and what inspires their creativity.   “The satisfaction that you get from actually making something with your own hands can’t be described,” says woodturner Steven Kennard, “The joy and the delight!”
Stone, featuring stone carver Heather Lawson was released last week.  Turns, featuring Steven Kennard will be released on Vimeo on May 5, followed by Mother Earth (May 19), Fibre & Wood (June 2), Lady Bug(June 16), and Rust (June 30).
Directed by Ben Proudfoot of Breakwater Studios International Ltd., Life’s Work is a collaboration between Craft Alliance Atlantic Association and the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council.  Funding for the project was provided by ACOA Nova Scotia and Film and Creative Industries Nova Scotia who recognized and supported the opportunity to celebrate and promote our vibrant culture, our talented craftspeople, and our beautiful province to a global audience.
“There’s something that turns me on about the fact that, at the end of the day here’s something that I think is very cool that didn’t exist in the morning.  It wasn’t there last week.  It didn’t exist last year.  And here it is,” says sculptor Gordon Kennedy, “If you want to do things, do it.  This isn’t the dress rehearsal.  What matters is life.  Life matters.  Live it.””

February Snow Storm: View From the Back Door

How do you fancy opening your back door to this one morning? We did it several mornings. And Joni went over the top first! At least our door opens inward or we might have had problems getting out as many people did.

Surely there should be a #snowsunday  or something of that nature? Instead of #depthoffieldSunday  why not a #depthofsnowSunday ?

Try selling it to drought stricken Californians. One person from Boston is selling bottle of snow at  $19.99 (and people are buying it!!) :-)

The Lost Orchard

The release of the Vimeo profile video about me ( https://vimeo.com/126545288 ) has prompted requests to show some of the photography of the actual lost orchard. Here is my posting and an image I took in the fog, of one of the wonderful old trees in that beautiful orchard. I have taken others and will try to post more soon.

A great photo of such a special place. Old orchards like this are an historical part of the landscape - to remove them is awful and to leave the land fallow just adds insult to injury!

I'm so glad you were able to watch it, +Giselle Minoli
I knew you would like it. I agree that they did a beautiful job. The three others so far released in the series (Stone, about a woman stonemason, Heather Lawson and Mother Earth, about a clay sculptor, Louise Pentz) are also beautiful, though they haven't had a fraction of the plays this one has.

I Want to be a Husky When I Grow Up

In a previous posting, where we talked about a very cold and snowy walk with Joni, our friend Ursula asked to see a photograph of how she looked at the end of her walk. We were out for 2 hours and the wind was blowing the snow swirling around the fields. Joni never seemed to mind as long as we kept throwing her toy.

So here she is, +Ursula Klepper waiting for you to throw her a blue ball! You can bring  Mira along with you, though she might find it a bit cold!
