Wordless Wednesday: Sculptures

$3,200

$15,000

$21,000

We went to a museum recently that in addition to the art show we went to see, had sculptures for sale inside and outside. Check out the selling prices. I bet one blogger I know won't be surprised (her husband does sculpting), but I was floored. Needless to say we didn't bring any of them home with us that day, nor will we be any time in the near future. ;)

Those are really neat. It's amazing what people come up with sometimes.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Don't think I have the cash for those.

Sandee said...

Wow, that's a lot of loot. Wow. I do like the first one the best.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Catherine Sargent said...

They are all really nice. I like the wood one the best. They would be a little too much for my budget.

Wow! How unique and beautiful! Thanks for sharing, those are really cool!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Those are neat, but super expensive. However, I am really loving the wooden one!

Karren Haller said...

What very interesting sculptures. I love the one of wood!!!

Growing Up Madison said...

I love them but they won't be making it in my home either any time soon or maybe never. :)

Kristi Maloney said...

Those are beautiful sculptures with some hefty price tags!! Yikes!

Debra Rutt said...

Beautiful sculptures. Way too rich for my blood - but they shouldn't belong to "a" person - they should be on display for lots of people to admire!

Megan Elford {WelcomeToTheZoo} said...

Beautiful, but too expensive for me! I'm glad that the artists are able to make money on them though!

MikiHope said...

Interesting sculptures--not worth the money according to me-but then I am sure there are others that would buy them. That first one is very interesting--I think.

Pat Hatt said...

Ummm I'm in the wrong line of work I think

jaime said...

Those are fabulous-looking sculptures! I'm sure they're worth the cost....I just can't afford one. :)

Brian Miller said...

nice...i really like that first one...feels so organic to the wood....

Janine Huldie said...

Seriously shocked and shouldn't be as Kevin is an artist, but still am just a bit ;)

Elephant's Child said...

Love them. And am forced to continue to love sculpture from afar...

Jen said...

Wow these are really neat!!

Stefany T said...

These are so beautiful. We have a sculpture park in my city. I need to go there soon with the kids. They would love it.

Binky said...

I think I could do that driftwood one for a quarter of the price!

Jenna said...

It's always cool seeing designs like this. It makes you wonder the thought process.

Homemom3 said...

I actually love the wood work. My father always said beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Happy Wordless Wednesday. http://homemom3.com

My grandfather and aunt are both stone sculptures. It takes a lot of work to produce one piece. And they don't always sell, so it might take a year for one piece to be sold. If you think of that way they are only making 21,000 dollars a year, which isn't much at all :) Beautiful sculptures!

Ronnie E. said...

I like them so much! They remind me of dancing <3 I once bought a similar small one in Aruba because it looked like a ballerina!

Grace said...

I love abstract art as it can be what ever you think it represents. I love the first and third one.

Dawn Rae said...

I followed the link here from Abracabadra's Wordless Wednesday link...and I'm so glad I did. Beautiful sculptures.

Love them! Thank you for sharing!

Couponing Away Debt said...

Pretty cool but I dont know anyone that would pay that kind of money for them. YIKES!

Yona Williams said...

The prices on the sculptures are a lot (to me, at least), but I do believe it takes a lot of time, patience and skill to make them, correct? My favorite is the one in the middle.

Trisha Grimes said...

Oh wow, I can only imagine how much they cost! They look very interesting though!

Lalia Frolick said...

I like the first one most, I'm not very fond of the very cold modern look that's in style. I think it would have looked even better with less varnish, though!

Kristen Campbell said...

Ooo, that first wooden one is absolutely beautiful!

Launna said...

Rosey, I love the sculptures... I think they can be so amazing... people are so creative... :) Have a great rest of the week xox

Soiree Design Studio said...

WOW! Those prices are jaw dropping. Never realized sculptures were so expensive. Awesome work.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi Rosey, I like the sculptures too but the prices are crazy!

Pam said...

I knew sculptures were crazy expensive having been to the art museum recently. They are amazingly creative though.

debdenny said...

I guess I won't bring any home either. Interesting looking tho.

Shauna Torres said...

Those just look awesome... I love how artists can think outside the box to create...

Ben Butler said...

I really like the first one. I'm not a huge fan of the super modern look of the other ones, but that wood one really speaks to me.

Colette S said...

These are quite beautiful, but wow on the money!

Maria said...

Beautiful! I love capturing the beauty of art in my own area.

Michael D'Agostino said...

I have no idea how art is priced and I don't think I ever will.

Pauline Cabrera said...

Wonderful pieces of art. The prices are crazy, but rightfully so.

Jessica Harlow said...

I really love the first piece (the wooden sculpture) and I'd love to have it at my home, but at that price is gonna be a little bit of a wait! lol

Katrina Gehman said...

I love that first sculpture! very cool

Alisha Kostiuk said...

These are beautiful. I love sculptures they tell their own story.

Jeanine said...

Wow how pretty! Great pieces. Such a wonderful sight to see such beauty like this!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Someone needs to move some decimal points far to the left.

Andrea Callahan said...

These sculptures are really astonishing.

Christy Garrett said...

Those are expensive sculptures but they are amazing. Thank you for sharing.

Stephanie Pass said...

Those look very interesting. We love sculptures and art work.

Taya Elery said...

Humm, guess I do have expensive taste, cause I do love that third one!

Jacquelineand.... said...

I think I shall admire the sculptures from afar... otherwise it would be my luck to stumble and fall into one and have to pay for it!

Kero said...

stunning creations with eye watering prices! art really is exclusive for people with money to burn

Susanna Barbee said...

I love sculptures, but they are quite pricey. We have some really amazing sculptures in our home town of Asheville.

becca said...

I enjoy art. I like how definite people see different things when looking at it.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They are really neat. Out of my price range for sure ;-)

NC Sue said...

Cool sculpture!!

Melanie Walsh said...

Unfortunately with the price tag I wouldn't be able to bring any home either. But the sculptures sure are beautiful. What a statement they'd make in someone's home.

Ugochi said...

Lovely sculptures! I think they are too pricy though!

Laura Grace Andry said...

I really like the person sculpture. It makes me smile and would be a fun one to see on a daily basis.

Susan Simon said...

These are some lovely sculptures. I would love to have the money to get one!

Cinny Bbs said...

Those look so gorgeous! My favorite is the first one.

~ Noelle said...

Yeah right... I know you bought several of them :)
Ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!
They are so fun to look at, but WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY out of my price range

alissa apel said...

These are pretty neat. Travis can make better ones though. ;) I'm just teasing.

The Mommy-Files said...

These are some pretty sculptures! I love art like this.

mail4rosey said...

You were the blogger I was talking about in the post. ;)

Kori Tomelden said...

Those are really neat sculptures! My uncle used to do metalworking.

Melissa Vera said...

I love these beautiful sculptures. Thank you for sharing.

Ruchira Khanna said...

Wow!
Loved the sculptures but those prices were daunting ;)

Thanks for linking up, Rosey :)

Christie C said...

These are really neat. No wonder the price tag though, yikes!

Krystal Butherus said...

I love looking at unique art! I used to work at a museum!

Chrystal Mahan said...

Oddly enough I like the wood one and its the cheapest. I was invested in art for a long time. Knowing all the hours that goes into a piece , it doesn't surprise me at how much these cost.

Robin said...

Way back in the day (early 90s), right after I graduated college, I lived in NYC with two of my college friends. Then, one of the girls' boyfriend moved in. He fancied himself an artist, particularly a sculptor. He scavenged "trash" for his pieces, particularly old TV sets. He planned on making something artsy with it "one day." All I know is that their bedroom kept filling up with Junk. I was glad when my other roommate and I parted ways with him. I don't know about all sculptors, but he was an odd duck.

Rebecca Swenor said...

These are some amazing sculptures indeed. I always look at things like this to try to get into the Artist head. Thanks for sharing.

DeDa Studios said...

I love art - if I could I would have a yard full of sculptures.

musingsonmotherhoodmidlife said...

What gorgeous sculptures. I love the first one the best.

Danielle Leigh said...

These sculptures are so incredibly gorgeous! I'd love one for both our front and back yards.

Liz Mays said...

I totally appreciate them, but not enough to lay out the money for them. I sure like admiring them in museums though.

Victoria said...

These are all very unique sculptures.

Carly said...

I think sculptures are a lot of fun to look at. There are so many unique ones out there.

Christina Aliperti said...

Those are beautiful sculptures. I think sculptures give you a view into the artist's inner thoughts and personality.

Tracy Iglesias said...

I have always loved sculpture! When I would go to the museum with my parents as a kid, they would gravitate to paintings and I would run and find the sculptures and then sit and sketch them all day! LOL

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

Rose-Marie said...

It is fun to view, but to buy, ouch! I like old fashioned art, artists that do pretty paintings and the same with sculpture. Some modern art I don't get it, but I'd love to go to any gallery any time and still appreciate someone's expression!

AdinB said...

Those are awesome! That is true. Wonderful to look at and admire, but can't afford to buy it.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

Those sculptures are really nice. It takes a lot of talent to do that!

Momi Glenz said...

These look cool! thanks for sharing

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Sorry to the artist but in my humble opinion that is insane!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I like the wood sculpture the best.... but wow!! So, which one do you like best Rosey?

Maggie King said...

Wow! Those prices floored me as well! The sculptures are beautiful!

mail4rosey said...

I like the wood one best. I wouldn't pay that much for it though... it'd be sorely out of place at our house anyway. ;)

MallSaleLover said...

Nice work but a bit pricey. Can't afford to have those at home but I do admire the creators.

Cam said...

These are gorgeous! The first one is probably my favorite. I like the stain on it.

Terra Heck said...

I think sculptures are beautiful pieces of art, but they are definitely way out of my price range!
