Plumb Bob: Shelter and Plumb Bob: Loving and Faithful were both accepted into Soulcology: An Exhibition in Metal at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, Connecticut. It is a national, juried exhibition and will be on view from June 6 through July 27th, 2014. It was organized by Lanette Barber and adjudicated by Robert Dancik. I am additionally pleased to announce that Shelter received the third place award! Both pieces are part of a seried of plumb bobs that either hang from forged wall hooks or may be worn as necklaces.

The following is the statement which pertains to these pieces:

Plumb bobs have been used to find “true” vertical lines as well as depth. These plumb

bob pendant necklaces come from the understanding that hard decisions must

sometimes be made and those things upon which we base our decisions are reflections

of what we value. “Shelter” references the idea of a secure home as a concern around

which major life decisions may be built. It is not difficult to see great significance in the

ability to access a dependable shelter, and the gold key is an exact duplicate of the

back door key to my first house. “Loving and Faithful” is about a commitment to another

in a partnership as a foundation for decision making. My husband and I were married

according to the traditions of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and our vows

were to be “with divine assistance, loving and faithful” unto each other.

Ana, congratulations on your award! I think this wonderful piece you describe, "Shelter", may be beside mine on the wall of this exhibition.  I have 2 pieces included as well, and am unable to attend. By chance I struck up a conversation with a visiting tourist here where I live, and she happened to live near the Guilford Art Center and offered to send me photos of her visit to the exhibition.  The silhouette of the piece in her photo made me think of this blog post about your plumb bob pieces there.  I am honored to be your neighbor!
