Jeremy Raverty and Rita Sloane picked up their matching bronze sinks yesterday. They look like the one pictured here. I took photos of the new ones but can't seem to get them to copy correctly. It amazes me how well new technology works most of the time and how surprised I am when it doesn't. I think it should be the opposite, amazed that it works at all.
Now I am putting together a proposal for Children's Hospital in the Twin Cities. They are spending a great deal of money on art for both the Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses. Children's is limiting art work to Minnesota artists. This doesn't happen often and I think it is just great they have the confidence in Minnesota artists to fill their needs.

I have just finished a baptismal for First Lutheran Church of Duluth. They are refurbishing the sanctuary and have a new pipe organ in process. My part is the bronze basin for the baptismal, the base is wood from Rob's Mill Work in Superior WI. The design is by Steve Edwins of SMSQ Architects in Northfield MN.
