Featuring Two Sculptors with Very Different Approaches to their Art

Figurative Sculpture by Stephen Canneto

I guess because I have never attempted a sculpture in metal, I am fascinated by what sculptors can create.  I wanted to feature one sculptor that I just learned about and another who lives in my areas whose work I have enjoyed for years.

I learned about Stephen Canneto's when he was recently featured by ArtsyShark.  I definitely found exploring his website very worth while.  He has created a variety of figurative and abstract sculptures, many are public art. The grace and fluidity of Stephan's work is amazing.  Some of his pieces include glass balls and panels.

Ed Kidera has a studio here in Maryland. His work is ahead of its time, working for many years with recycled parts including old steel cylinders, car, truck and farm parts. He creates unique pieces for home, garden, and public art. His sculptures have been part of several Howard County's ARTsites, including "Getting The Band Back Together" from 2013.

Most recently Ed Kidera was commissioned to create several sculptures for the new entrance to the Columbia Mall. "Getting The Band Back Together" is one of the sculptures included in the Columbia Mall project.  Watch Ed's video of the installed sculptures and be sure to see them in person at the Columbia Mall, 10300 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. The Grand Opening of this new entrance is scheduled for October 16, 2014.

A Bell by Ed Kidera

In addition to these public art pieces Ed sculpts the most melodious bells.  About his art, Ed describes it as "functional art that lasts forever."   Some of Ed's pieces can be used as sound systems for iPods, iPhones, and MP3 players.  His creativity is boundless. Take a look at his variety of work on his website and in  Ed's Etsy store.
