Six unique pieces
The Joy Buddy figurine sits atop a ¼” copper polished base With a small wave and a big pop of color, the “Joy Buddies” bring smiles and warmth. In times of trauma and upheaval, choosing joy in the darkest of moments can be a survival mechanism while also leading us to a place of thriving. Creating these Joy Buddies sculptures help me to do just that: support, share love, and thrive. Each Joy Buddy sculpture is designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles, CA.
The brilliant colors are from applying precise heat to “coax” the colors that naturally exist in the copper. This is a miniature version of the life-size sculpture "Joy Buddies" that originally debuted at Artprize at the DeVos Grand Gallery in 2017.
