Jonathan Clark's Nautilus

Jonathan Clarke

I'm not sure what this piece is called, but "Nautilus" would be a petty good title, don't you think? I saw this at the Darke Gallery yesterday, and I like it a lot. It's apparently made from scrap wood, but it looks like Clark worked the wood quite a bit. You'll recall that he did a similar piece that was on display (and probably still is on display) at Box 13. I don't really have much to say about this piece except that I like it--it looks great.

I wonder how well it would handle the weather? Maybe with a coat of paint or clear polycoat, it could be made relatively permanent. It would be a damned handsome piece of lawn art for some adventurous Houston burgher. Here's another view:
