Pierce Angel

Kim Pierce had been visiting my booth at the Covington Three Rivers Arts Festival for years. During that time, she had collected about a half dozen of my smaller pieces and was now ready to purchase one of my larger figures. She had her eye on a mermaid that I had recently finished, but we quickly determined that she was going to need something much larger for her space. Kim has an open floor plan with 12 foot ceilings and a broad section of stark white walls. I could have made her taller, but we also needed width. That’s when we decided to give the mermaid wings.

Kim’s initial intention was to put her in the front foyer of the house. But when we got there, my wife Robin suggested another place. The mermaid’s placement, without even realizing at first how perfectly the mermaid connects the open floor plan with the surrounding rooms, we quickly saw the mermaid’s wingspans transcend the space. She now has become the effervescence heart of a home as she looks over you. And at several vantage points in the open floor plan, one can see the mermaid. Kim and her family have graciously hosted us in their guest house sometimes since, and Robin and I are happy we have grown a great friendship along the way. We are currently discussing the possibility of modifying the wings to be even larger!

He created “Libby,” a book angel for libraries. Former Louisiana Poet Laureate Darrell Bourque penned “Words, A Poem,” an engraved poem for Libby’s wings.

BLOCKHEAD KIDS

It all started when…

A few years ago, my niece Lola was drawing in one of my notebooks. One of her sketches, in particular, caught my attention. The drawing was a big blocky head and a disproportionately small rectangular body with little arms and legs that seemed to be dangling from the torso.

When l come across an image that I find inspiring, my wheels start turning, and I start to work out in my head how this would translate regarding my style and favored tools and materials. The “blockhead kids” are a mixture of my doll-like VooDoo babies / ZoZo-bebés and my segmented fishing lures. They each have their personalities that are defined by their expressions, outfits and often something that they are holding. Sometimes a toy or an instrument and sometimes a retro object that I relate to my childhood in the 70s and 80s. —Kelly Guidry
