"Greetings!" - Was a Special Offering for the Cairn Collector Society Artwork Series.
Greetings from Cairn Studio and Tom Clark, Jim Palmer, Lee Sievers, and Timothy Wolfe.
Created for the Collector Society Artwork Series, this is the first statue that combines the exceptional talents of the Cairn artists, with each contributing a "signature" sculpture. This collaborative effort was conceived by Lee Sievers, who sculpted the hard-working Woodcarver. Now some new friends have come to watch the Woodcarver put the finishing touches on his very special project. A traditional Gnome, sculpted by Tom Clark, admires the new sign from above, and holds a half dollar dated 1978, the year Cairn Studio was founded. From Tom's backyard came the large acorn which dots the "i" in Cairn. The Gnome shares his perch with a curious tree frog, while a small rabbit (both sculpted by Timothy Wolfe) peeks around the corner. Jim Palmer created the drake and baby wood duck, his first clay sculptures, having previously worked exclusively with wood carving. On the back of the sign are quotations from the artist themselves, expressing the messages they hope to convey, through their artworks, to all Cairn Collectors.
