I am opening my studio for the weekend of September 30 (10-4) and October 1 (12-4), 2023...come on out and visit - I am stop number 4 on the interactive map on the Bolton & Harvard Open Studios webpage. Three other artists are joining me in my yard - Arlene Fins (jewelry and sculpture), Kellie-Jean Price (woodburning - Sunday only), and Fay Senner (mixed media and astrological art). We all would love to see you!
Welcome to Babacool Arts! I create sculpture out of metal, clay, repurposed materials, and stained glass. I design most of my pieces to handle outdoor weather...I picture them on a fence, on a tree, or on the side of a house, shed, barn or garage. My work is inspired by nature, folklore, and myth and it feels right that my pieces can be displayed within natural settings.
My metal pieces are created with heat and fire, hand-cut with a plasma cutter torch, and/or welded. My clay pieces are hand-built and hand-glazed and fired in a kiln. I love combining mediums - clay with metal, metal with stained glass, recycled materials with metal and/or clay. My favorite recycled materials include shovels, pans, metal pails, wine corks, propane tanks, and other interesting things I happen to come across.
This website shows what type of pieces I have created over the past 14 years, along with newer pieces that are currently available for sale - and where you can purchase them. I have a booth at Knotty Pines Design in Hudson (MA) where I update my art on a monthly basis. I also have art at the following wonderful stores: Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm in Framingham (MA), Central Mass Garden Center in Lunenburg (MA), deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum gift shop in Lincoln (MA), Five Crows in Natick (MA), Hudson Art & Framing in Hudson (MA), Kitchen Sink in Bolton & Groton (MA), Periwinkle Glassworks in Groton (MA), and the Wayside Inn Farmstand in Sudbury (MA). If you are in the area, please check out these fabulous stores! I also host art fair events at my small antique farm two or three times a year...I post these events on my FB page, Instagram, this website, and to my "mail list."
Babacool Arts is located in Bolton, Massachusetts. My family bought an antique farm and I converted the old barn into my studio. I typically open my Art Barn to the public in small art-fair events a few times a year (I invite other artists to set up in my yard amongst my sculptures). Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you would like to be added to my very infrequent email list and be notified about my events.
