D’Arcy Bellamy Artist Statement
All of my sculptures are created from steel pipe. I like that I am recycling a utilitarian, unromantic, extremely practical material that has been largely overlooked by other artists. Each of my sculptures is completely unique; there is no casting or duplication of any kind.
I have been sculpting since 2002. I am largely self taught. I focus on creating light, delicate, free form shapes which capture the essence of movement and are fun for the viewer to look at. Many of the finished forms spring to life when gently touched and cast interesting shadows when they are lit. The base material naturally lends itself to objects with strong negative space, curves and tension.
Brian Farrell Statement
2SandsMerc is a local company out of Star, Idaho. Owner Bryan Farrell is an Army veteran, husband, and soon-to-be father who began making wine racks as a hobby in his free time. With his wife having worked in the wine industry for almost a decade however, word got out and it soon became something more. Working with steel and real leather hides, he can create anything from a one-bottle tabletop display to large-scale pieces to hold your entire collection. He named the company 2Sands to represent the time he spent deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. For more information, visit his shop at Etsy.com/shop/2SandsMerc or email him at 2SandsMerc@gmail.com
