The Boat Motor

I guess I need to stop posting photographs of museum exhibits. But there are so many interesting things to see and so many creative ideas, I can't stop! You are going to love the title of this sculpture: "My Girlfriend Never Gave Me a Boat Motor." It is by Clint Newfeld. I was blown away when I rounded a corner and saw this! I wondered how this couch could hold up an entire boat motor! Guess what - it is all ceramic! It is a stunning reproduction of an engine in clay, and fired with a white glaze! Amazing. And of course, this is incongruous (my favorite new word) to find this engine on a beautiful, delicate upholstered couch.
