Yay! I'm a finalist for Herradurra Tequila artists competition.

Just got the news, and I'm so excited to be accepted as one of the 10 Los Angeles artists in this years Herradurra competition to make a sculpture out of an old oak barrel! They chose 10 artists in 8 different cities, and will have a big event in each one. They haven't set the dates yet, but in Oct-Nov they will deliver a barrel to me and I have 6 weeks to finish it. I have a lot of ideas, but they're complicated, so I better get to work on a prototype… I'm picturing protrusions (like the piece pictured below) that have windows to the inside of the barrel, that will be lit from within.
