The Art of Bean Finneran

I'd like to introduce you to an artist whose work I really admire.

Bean Finneran creates sculptures called 'cones' out of hundreds (and thousands) of individually created 'ceramic curves'.  I've included her YouTube video at the end of this post so that you can see how these sculptural gems are created.

I first came upon one of her sculptures while visiting my beautiful and talented friend 

The fuschia sculpture that Marion owns now sits on her lanai.

When I went back home to Hawaii a few years ago, I visited Marion and she had the Bean Finneran piece featured on her coffee table in her living room.

Ms. Finneran's sculptures are so reminiscent of natural sea coral, and I love that each 'sculpture' is made of individual parts that can be reshaped by it's owner.

Watch and you will be amazed!
