The builds of Suzanne Graves

The above picture show part of a sculpture made by Suzanne Graves. She’s a very special friend of mine that has just recently started building. In first life, she’s a complete math nerd, and that shows in her sculptures. They are complex structures that makes you think of when you sat hunched over your school books and tried to understand advanced geometry. But even though it’s made with the help of dry, mathematical configurations, as you can see, the result is one of spectacular beauty. I love what she’s doing.

One funny thing is how quickly she has advanced. Bettina Tizzy, who knows a good thing when she sees one, has already taken an interest in her, and posted this neat little movie of Suzanne’s work on her Not Possible In Real Life blog.

Suzanne has put up her own blog as well, where she explains what she does and why and so on. I’m really looking forward to all the beautiful things she will come up with.

  1. Therese, I love the way you are so supportive of the arts and artists, and Suzanne and her work are that. I followed your flickr link to see what new things she was up to and discovered you linking to my blog. Thanks for your kind words.

  2. I can say the same about your support for the art and artists as well, Bettina. It was so good to see the movie you’d made of Suzanne’s work.

  3. Thank you.
    Thank so much.
