FROM ONU DEPARTMENT OF ART AND DESIGN FACEBOOK - Last week, Ohio Northern University Professor Luke Sheets was part of an international team of sculptors in Denmark working on the vision of Sten Lykke Madsen.

Luke reports, “We spent about five days building the two-meter, 500 kg sculpture. It dried for several days and was fired with gas for two additional days before switching to wood. [Last Friday, we brought] the final temperature to around 1280 degrees C.

“This has been an exciting project to be a part of. Our international team of sculptors included me, Tanja Punans (a Russian), Sara Jeffries (a Dane), Hattie Thomas (a Brit), and Andres Allik (an Estonian kiln designer/builder).

"All of us worked together to bring to life the vision of Sten, an artist from Denmark whose whimsical pieces have been recognized in various books, journals, and exhibitions for decades.”
