March 20, 2011 Volcanos and Ogden Lego Show Posted In: Shows

This weekend was the Millican Ogden Lego show in Calgary. I like to enter something in this show each year, and usually it’s something out of the ordinary for me (read, not giant mosaic). Or if I have a mosaic in the show, I like have something else, something that makes me try different things.

This year, in prep for another show coming up in the summer, I had started work on a hallway, and a volcano inhabited by Islanders. The day of the show arrived too soon, and I wasn’t able to add everything I wanted to, but it still turned out ok. It won first prize in its group, but the most important thing is that I proved to myself I could make something “normal”.

A view from the front. You can see the hallway leading to the Volcano cone, and the dock out in front. This will be connected to group piece later, with water surrounding.

Inside the volcano. I decided to solve the problem of how to show inside and out by making a cutaway, framed with tile.

And of course, I couldn’t help but make a few mosaics in the hallway.

A bird’s eye view of the whole thing.

My son also won 3rd prize in his category, with a lovely Squirrel.
