  1. I must reaffirm the superlative of sean (above)… Just magnificent work
    Such joy radiates from them all…even through the limited lens of a photograph.
    I have a much beloved hand-cast sculpture from circa. 1980 I purchased from Atlas gallery, here in Chicago. It still, to this day is so very pleasing to me. The artist signature is of a woman: “Starlie Skol-Hohne”…Nowhere to be found on the web…Perhaps she was once a student??? This piece is an abstract…with color-highlights added I believe by staining with a syringe. It has such depth and myriad perspectual interest…I never tire of it…like my favorite jazz ballad “Then I’ll Be Tired of You” (Wonderful lyric)!
    Just thought I’d say hello and send great praise!
