I’ve been a bit obsessed with croquet balls lately. I love their look. I use them as mounts and bases for my birds. They’ve become the #1 talking point at art shows when folks want to talk about my work.
Tongue in cheek, I’ve been claiming that we may be the largest recycler of croquet balls in central Indiana. This may be still be true, but I’ve found another artist using croquet balls for the same purpose. There may even be a bit of an ironic connection between his work and mine. I need to do a bit of research before a make that claim.
Jim Mullan makes these birds in Florida. It seems that they’ve been discontinued. Perhaps his supply of croquet balls has dried up.
