After a year of experimenting with hollow polymer tubes, Ford/Forlano are debuting their latest creations with more here.

Steve says, “For months, I’ve been playing with the form, and emailing pics to David in Santa Fe for his reaction. Mostly, we agreed that there was an interesting, if creepy, wormy quality to the early incarnations that we finally overcame with more practice and experimentation.”

Those of us who have followed this duo for a few years may detect a return to the cartoon quality of their early works. The inside out color adds a dash of intrigue.

    Hollow polymer is so much fun to play with…I love what they’ve done with it!

      I have always loved their old Zen City Cane work. I find much of their recent work too sophisticated for my taste. I see the work involved and apreciate the technique and diffaculty but it doesn’t sing to me.

        It’s very interesting work. I admire PC artist that experiment and perfect a technique.

          Quoting Marcie, “. . . too sophisticated for my taste. I see the work involved and apreciate the technique and diffaculty but it doesn’t sing to me.”

            I think what stands out to me is “After a year of experimenting…”. What a reminder to work on having patience with particular designs!
