From the gravity defying to the oversized utilitarian object, these outdoor sculptures are magical because they offer up the unexpected. Who would expect a giant clothes pin to suddenly spring from the earth or two massive slabs of rocks to precariously teeter ten feet off the ground? In a world where the expected is norm, these sculptors managed to provide a wonderful surprise.

I am so grateful to these artists, to all artists for that matter, for providing us a respite from the mundane!
