HANGING SCULPTURE AND FREESTANDING SCULPTURE FROM JANESVILLE, WISCONSIN.
I'm Mark Lajiness, a multimedia sculptor originally from Racine, Wisconsin. I currently live in Janesville, Wisconsin. My house has plenty of studio space including two garages out in back.
If you'd like to see which shows I'm doing this year, click on the "Art Fairs" link above. If you'd like to see my work, click on "Portfolio." and you'll go to a list of categories. If you'd like to see my birds, click on birds. If you'd like to see the cats, click on cats. You get the idea.
If you see something you'd like to purchase, I may have the piece on hand or (most likely) I may have sold it. However, I save my templates and can re-create almost anything on this site, usually within a couple of weeks. If you'd like to ask about prices or make a purchase, please contact me at email@example.com or leave a note on the "contact" of this site.
Many of my pieces are priced in the neighborhood of $50. Most pieces are under $80. Fish start at $30.
Lots of my materials have had a former life as furniture, musical instruments, roofing copper, and so on. I work in upcycled wood, copper, stained glass, and found objects, and do my soldering with a handheld propane torch.
If you'd like to bring me an object to incorporate into a sculpture, please contact me. I've used brass instruments, woodwinds, drums, bottles and various power tools.
While I have some standing pieces, most of my work hangs from monofilament cord to move in the breeze and seemingly change proportions -- left side to right side, skinny to thick, etc. Some pieces may hang outdoors, but most will last much longer indoors, hanging by a sunny window, near a fireplace, from a wooden ceiling or on a screen porch. This isn't "garden art" but sometimes, in certain settings, my work can hang outside during certain seasons.
Have fun looking around the site!
