I have had many requests to make more lips -- the original I did many years ago still gets noticed, even though it sold immediately. This mixed stone composition is more symmetrical due to the lines in the stone. I included a top view of the sculpture because you can see the concentric rings around each "point" on the upper lip. Nice detail.
I was not sure what title to give this composition. Lip Service was a suggestion by someone on my art newsletter subscription list. Another possible title: Service with a Smile. Very different ideas: As YOU like. hahaha.
The red stone of the lips is from a Texas quarry. Several people I spoke with differed on whether or not it is sandstone or limestone, but here in Texas it is marketed and sold as Pecos sandstone. I was told that the pieces of Pecos that I bought and carved came from a dismantled or renovated West Texas courthouse. The base with the tie is a Texas creme limestone. The stones have been joined with a stainless steel pin, so rust is not a problem. This artwork may be displayed indoors or outdoors. Or, if you just like the lips, the pin may be secured to any other base or just a rock.. or removed to set flat on a table. I hope you enjoy.
