Germination III
Created: 2016
Materials: Bronze
Dimensions: 54” x 24” x 12”
Weight: 150 lbs
Retail Price: $7,900

In the life cycle of plants, seeds play a vital role as the new plant begins. If the seed is viable, if it is good and is exposed to a favorable environment, it germinates and sprouts into existence.

This sculpture features a slice of textured earth, allowing the viewer to take in the early stages of growth of a good seed, with a root shown sprouting from the seed, pushing downward to establish a foundation for the plant. Over 70 different types of seeds are represented in the sculpture’s texture.

As a seed begins germinating, it demonstrates its great potential for strength as it pushes past the dirt, stones, organisms, and debris, inexorably seeking light. Observation of this seemingly tenuous growth highlights its persistence and perseverance in finding its way. Each germination is a lesson in persistent, patient effort in finding the way past all hardships to sustaining the light. This sculpture is textured from a mixture of actual organic material, decaying leaves, bugs, and other objects found underground.

Created: 2019
Materials: Stainless Steel
Dimensions: 10’ x 3’ x 3’
Weight: 200 lbs
Retail Price: $4,900

This sculpture, which began as an unusually large tube of stainless steel, took a whimsical turn when it struck artist Dan Toone that it looked like the stem of a flower or plant. To complete his vision, he added petals created from repurposed steel from a dairy road tanker, and a signature mirror-finished stainless steel sphere that adds dimension to the piece, despite such uniformity in its materials. The base of the sculpture features a contrasting steel finished with a rusted patina—the element brings a heavier, earthy feel to this botanical piece.

Daydream is available for purchase! Please contact LiveDAYBREAK at information@livedaybreak.com for additional information.

1.ldartwalk-481. Teach - Nathan Brimhall
Created: 2019
Materials: Steel
Dimensions: 3’ x 3’ x 9 ‘-3”
Weight: 250 lbs
Retail Price: $11,000
Artist Website: www.nmbenembe.com

About the Sculpture: The idea of Teach began as a motion, a movement of crouching down that transforms into standing and reaching tall. The movement began as a grounded, ready position, and moved upward into a growth and a freedom. It had many working titles, none of which satisfied the artist. It was still unnamed when the artist was invited to present the sculpture at a Career Day event at a local middle school. Brimhall realized there that its name was Teach. Teachers give us the ability to stay grounded but fly, to be safe but be free and unlimited in our exploration, learning, and growth. That idea of being grounded but being ready and equipped to reach is what the movement and the sculptural interpretation of that movement represent.
