The Singers – Michael Hermesh

The Singers by Michael Hermesh

This sculpture by Michael Hermesh has three fully turning figures that are all enraptured with their song. Sometimes they face inward and enjoy their music among themselves or sometimes they choose to face outward so that they can sing for an audience. It is made of ceramic and plaster with a beautiful white waxed finish to it. It is 26 inches high by 13.25 inches wide by seven inches deep. It also has an unusual triangular base. SOLD

Our identities are not contained within a single entity. We are part of a choir that is part of the “who” of whom we are.

The Hat Box Man – Michael Hermesh

The Hat Box Man – Michael Hermesh:

The Hat Box Man is the tallest of the sculptures in Michael Hermesh’s “There Are No Secrets” Show. I’ve photographed it with Michael in the picture so that you can get an idea of the scale of the work. Michael Hermesh is 5’10” tall. SOLD

The Hat Box Man is the person who supplies hats to dreamers when required. Every night he runs from dream to dream delivering them and every morning he packs them up and takes them away.

Human To A Fault – Michael Hermesh

Human to a Fault by Michael Hermesh – Preview – There are No Secrets:

Human to a Fault by Michael Hermesh is one of those sculptures that stands on its own merit. Each and every viewer will get something entirely different as to what the sculpture is about and define it by their own personal experiences in life. This work is simply a man standing alone with a hat in one hand and a happy face mask in the other hand. His facial expression speaks volumes. The straps on the mask are made of Kangaroo Leather. Human to a Fault is 27 inches high by 5.5 and 5.75 inches wide and deep. SOLD

“Life in a Time of Joy” by Michael Hermesh featured on HGTV’s “The Stagers”

July 13, 2009
A couple of months ago HGTV’s tv program “The Stagers” used one of my sculptures in the program “Dazzling the Designer”. They actually did some nice close-ups of the work. “Life in a Time of Joy” has become a TV Celebrity!
Last week Carol, Angel and I stopped in at the Sonoran Estate Winery. I was considering placing some of my work there for the BC wide Cultural Crawl that’s going to run from July 25th to August 29th. We decided to tast some of the wines while we were there. I have to say that I was very very pleasantly surprised. This little winery can make some WINE! As it was still early in the season most of what they had on hand were the the whites and lighter reds. All I can say is that we left with five bottles of wine that we know we are thoroughly going to enjoy this summer. This winery is a must for tasting this year if you are in the neighborhood!
