A few concrete vegetables were made originally by my mother and grandmother. You might say their manufacture is a kind of family tradition. I make them these days as a fine art multiple object. I like the fact that they have made the transition from folk art eccentricity to fine art multiple. Each vegetable is unique, decorated in a particular way by the artist. It is the activity of making them rather than the object that fascinates me. My wife and I are presently teaching our son and daughter to make concrete vegetable sculpture.
