Mixed media, golf balls, steel wire
Whimsical. An intriguing word. You smile when you say or think it. Blaze Konefal takes everyday objects and creates whimsey. What do you do with used golf balls? Blaze created Dandelion Seeds, looking like an explosion of white dots ready to float away into space with a gentle puff (as if golf balls could fly).
Stainless steel and steel pipe
It is entrancing to watch the movement of the invisible wind as it moves the small mirrors, creating wave patterns and fractal images.
Mixed media, steel, wood
This is a variation of the Dandelion and using colored golf balls to create a flowering garden all through winter snows. A bright flash of color!
Blaze is currently busy in retirement making dynamic art, creating disc golf courses, tongue drumming, and running a Pilates studio. After 24 tense years in IT, he searches out whimsey and wonder. He currently shows most of his work at Sculpturefest in Woodstock, Vt. He has shown in Concord, Meredith, Franconia and New Field NH. He was at the Flying Horse Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit at Pingree School in Ma. this Fall.
