sculpture "Palm Paw" is a natural extension of my doorknocker,
"Knock, Knock." During the time I modeled the paw in wax, I
enjoyed holding it. I want people to be aware of the entire surface of
the paw: to see, feel, and massage the smooth pad in contrast to the subtle
texture on the toes. "Palm Paw" is the first sculpture I created
that is a medal, in that it has an "obverse," which is the top,
and a "reverse," which is the fully-finished back. "Palm
Paw" is indeed a medal of many talents: it handsomely plays the role
of an executive paperweight, or a bookweight, to luxuriously hold open
larger books. In addition, I've been told that "Palm Paw" is
a source of serenity when cradled between the palms. Take comfort in your
"Palm Paw." May it give you peace." - Joy Kroeger Beckner
"Palm Paw" is available in two patinas:
