"With the Wind" "Picasso's Violin"

"With the Wind" - by Jodie Bliss (2016) 

This piece reflects a feeling of freedom, inspired by the feeling of being on a sailboat, the strong pillar or mast supports the free flowing sail as it catches the wind and in the case of the sculpture, also the light through the many blown and stained glass elements.
"Picasso's Violin" - by Jodie Bliss (2016)

This 15' piece is a reflection of the relationship between the musician, the music and the dancer.  It is constructed of plasma cut steel, hand forged steel elements and hand blown glass.

Artist Jodie Bliss - Bliss Studio and Gallery is home to Artist Metalsmith Jodie Bliss. Jodie works primarily in forged and fabricated steel, often accompanied by copper, glass or other mixed media. This remarkable artwork is located at the South entrance of UVC in front of Starbucks and also across the same intersection to the south.

 

"Metatron's Cube"

"Metatron's Cube" by Matt Barton (2015)

"Metatron's Cube" contains three Platonic Solids (a cube, two intersecting tetrahedrons, and an octahedron), as well as a fourth (an icosahedron) suspended in the center.  It is believed that Plato viewed geometric forms as an intermediary realm between the physical and spiritual.  "Sacred Geometry" is shared by many "New Age" enthusiasts and this specific form is said to have to come from people channeling "Archangel Metatron" and that it functions much like an antennae, transmitting and receiving healing and guidance.  I love the notion that this piece is, in any way, a tool of some sort for "raising human consciousness" or "healing" (in addition to being an interesting sculptural form).  Who knows, right? Ideally, it will serve as Metatron's landing pad/portal.

This work of art is located at the north entrance of the shopping center near Trader Joe's.
