Sandy Calder’s studio in upstate New York, this page is (maybe) torn from an old issue of Twen Magazine . . . we can’t remember. I do know it pricked Barb’s imagination way back when we first met and I remember it was when I first cut up all my magazines for studio reference; Ramparts, Esquire, Nova, Twen, Tattler, French & US Vogues – they all were reduced to drawer-size concept stimulants.

This week the studio is busy fabricating up their first shapes in copper and tin sheet, testing melted tin wiped over those shapes, experiments using tin as solder, punching patterns and making the tools to make the shapes – next the copy and photography must be completed for advanced publicity and when we finally know what will be shown . . . a get-together with the Artisan installation crew to design the space. Watch this space!
