Arks of Barks from Barry Gregg Clayworks

Jeff (remember Jeff's Shutters?) needed a birthday present for the wife and invited me to tag along to Barry Gregg Clayworks. Lucky me.


Barry and Parker, his 3-legged dog, greeted us. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of Parker, the inspiration for Barry's happy bark ark period. Here's an ark.

Barry shows and sells all over the southeast. His work will catch your eye in a gallery or show and make you smile. This is from Mudfire more than a year ago, my first encounter with Barry's work.

Plenty of birds in the bark arks.

Barry's yard is a menagerie of totems.

Barry also models humans and rabbits when he's of a mind to.

    I'm sure Jeff's wife will figure out who he really bought the Bark Ark for! ;)

    P.S. I finally figured out that if I enable 3rd party cookies, I can comment from my google acct.

  5. Terry, how fun I love to see unique works of art. Are those garden stakes I spotted? They are wonderful!

  6. Karena, I think the dogs (and rabbits) on sticks are garden stakes.
