Swanee

Hi, I’m Sari…Last name Grove…This site shows some of my works of art, & some of how I do them, & probably some things that aren’t really art related, like our bengal cats, but they are, because they bring me joy & that makes my art more joyful…The works here are mostly since 2010 & forward…I take things down from the internet a while after they sell, mostly so whoever bought them gets sort of the privilege of having them, exclusive rights to look at them because they supported me financially…Some of the things here are sold, but still too fresh & I still have this ‘show off’ desire hanging in…

“Swanee” (sold) is a 5 foot long, around 100 lbs, of a custom concrete recipe Sari made, on top of 25 feet of rolled & shaped chicken wire, with a couple of coat hangers in the neck part…(armature secrets)
Sari’s Custom Concrete mix is:
2 parts white cement to 1 part aggregate:
(that 1 part aggregate is in 4 parts itself- so,
25% Perlite,
25% Aragonite sand,
25% white silica sand,
25% alkaline resistant glass fibres…)
Then 1 part liquid, which is 75% water to 25% latex adhesive (Milk)…
Covered in Eco-House special eco no VOC concrete sealer…
The black bill has added black cement powder paint integrally…
The nest is 750 feet of water-resistant rope woven on a hula hoop by hand…The rock was there already…
began late 2010- done early 2012

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
