jh salon show (peoples choice awards)

Dear Art Association:

Thank you for having me for the JH Salon Show this year. It was a pleasure to meet so many com padre artisans and get to know you little. I am thrilled to have won your vote with the award. This inspires me to create many more pieces in the coming year, God willing.

(NOTE: I was hoping to post the entire email here with all of the winners and their pictures, but presently there is no link to post. I will try to get the other pieces up in the near future)

koerber in MoMA?

At one point in time I thought about submitting my floosiga exhibit to MoMA (the Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe I dropped them a line via email or even on the phone. I never really pushed it. Perhaps it’s time to pursue this idea further!

art boxes

Along with the revamping of my rosary website I also started building art boxes with a custom monogram for the BVM which I designed last year for a scapular project. These boxes are made entirely of reclaimed oak. I hand engrave them and line them with 100% wool felt. They should last as long as the rosary you purchase if both are well cared for.

heirloom rosaries

In the past couple of months I worked hard to completely revamp the website that displays and offers these rosaries to the public. This includes a new website and beginning a campaign using Google adwords. I am presently working with a local firm Giffen Design, to see if I can increase exposure to these heirloom pieces.

dodecahedron calendar 2015

I recently became a member of pixels.com where I have posted 25 photos of my artwork including vectors, sculptures and a cut out dodecahedron calendar for 2015. You are able to create prints, etchings, phone case prints and even throw pillows using pixels.com very cool tools.

moulton barn

In the past four months I have taken to developing a new skill… sculpture. In particular, layered hardwood reliefs of some of the famous Jackson Hole themes. This is the most photographed barn in the United States, if not the entire world.
