16 or so sculptors participated in the first annual Ready, Set, Sculpt! event. Each sculptor was instructed to bring 10 items from their studio.
Upon arriving at the event sculptors were assigned randomly to 4 teams of 4 each. Each team made a pile of their items which were then passed to
another team. The goal was to for each team to convert their pile into a passable sculpture by 4:30pm the next day. No prizes were offered not even
glory but sculptors are a strange lot. They will do this sort of thing just for fun.
Plans are afoot to do this again. Perhaps with a welder on each team, perhaps not. In any case sculptors, begin saving those odd bits and pieces,
the odder the better. Grateful thanks to Lisa Strout for organizing and the Fire and Earth Art Center for the space.
