OK, I’ll admit it: summer’s over !

No more wading in the surf off some beach on Boston’s North Shore; not any reason to worry about the undertow or anything  floating where the water is just past your knees,…but maybe as a fond memory of those days, you’d like to let these beautiful jellyfish, carved on slate by local artist Michael Updike float on your wall over the winter.

In true New England craftsman tradition, Michael has carved his art by hand on old slate roofing shingles. This piece measures approx. 10×13 inches and floats about one inch off your wall (much safer than waist deep in the chilly Atlantic). They are compelling, with a natural texture that blends to any environment you bring them into; and their very presence will warm a room, or your very soul over a long Northeastern winter.

This, and other works available, at Connor Summers Gallery in Newburyport, MA.
