Hootie and the Blowfish with Sam and Scarlet

Steve Vaught's avatar Steve Vaught

My first piece is a 3 dimensional Great Horned Owl, named Hootie . My second piece is a 3 dimensional Blowfish made of copper and wood. The third piece is a 3 dimensional Toco Toucan similar to the Fruit Loops Toucan. The fourth piece is a Scalet Macaw. All 3 birds are made of recycled aluminum. All 4 pieces are handmade and painted. This has been an incredible experience creating these four pieces. After surviving a heart attack in June of 2014, causing me to miss last years Artprize, this project has filled my mind and time and has allowed me to focus on something other than my heart attack. It has been a very therapeutic experience. I am looking forward to the competition.
