'Ice Boat', Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney, Woody Creek, CO

On July 2nd, 2014, I returned  to my home in Woody Creek from my three month Tuscan adventure refreshed, revived, re-invigorated and intent on plunging straight into my studio workshop to begin immediate work on my third collection of Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture.    However, with over three months of catching up to do, combined with the myriad preparations for the Sculpture Garden’s 10th Anniversary Celebrations…   and it was towards the end of the month before I managed to re-occupy my studio-workshop and actually get down to the nitty-gritty business of sculpting marble.   And so after such a lengthy absence it’s perhaps not too surprising that,   in order to ease back into the swing of things,  I opted to initiate the ‘Autumn of 14 Collection‘ with a project of modest ambition while I reacquainted myself with my tools,   and re-embraced the life of a 21st Century Reductionist Marble Sculptor.     The result of my efforts is this piece of whimsy.  Part iceberg, part sailboat, Iceboat’s primary purpose is to be whatever it is you see in her; just tip a little water into her pool and watch the rippling refections have fun with the wafer thin marble walls of the two sails, and by nighttime just float a candle or two upon her waters. Keep your favorite pebbles in her. It’s up to you what you do. Colored sand would look good. Seashells?
