Home Is Where the Art Is: Emile Norman

One of my very favorite things: wooden eggs. Partially because of my Polish background, partially my simple affection for birds, I love egg sculptures. Tonight, watching PBS, we saw a lovely little documentary on Emile Norman and his beautiful Big Sur home. If you haven't heard of his work (like me about an hour ago!), he makes the most whimsical, vivacious pieces out of wood, dirt, plastic and paint. The best: this egg made of a swirling bird sky, every piece a different natural wood. His whole life seems to have been one of complete enthusiasm.
