07.28.2010– Waterville, Ohio—Renowned sculptor George Carruth has launched a blog, called “From George’s Studio”, which can be found at http://georgecarruth.com. Well known for his whimsical sculptures for home and garden art, George Carruth plans to use his blog as a vehicle for sharing information about his stone carving, sculpting, and the creative process. The blog will also serve as a vehicle for introducing new designs and soliciting feedback and ideas from his customers.
“People often wonder how I come up with the ideas for my sculptures or are curious about how the pieces are made,” said George Carruth. “I look forward to using the blog as another means of communicating with people who are interested in learning more about my work.”
George Carruth’s sculptures are considered collectibles and are used in interior design and home decoration; as garden art; gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and holidays; expressions of sympathy; wedding and anniversary gifts; pet memorials; installations; teacher’s gifts; expression of thanks; as landscaping accents; as wedding table decorations; corporate gift giving; fundraisers; and as client closing gifts by realtors. Several of his designs can be customized.
George Carruth’s designs are marketed online at http://carruthstudio.com and through an extensive national network of distributors. Carruth Studio’s gift shop and gallery, Garden Smiles, is located in Waterville, Ohio. Garden Smiles, the brainchild of George’s wife and business partner, Deborah Carruth, is the only place where you will find the complete collection of over 250 sculpted designs by George Carruth.
“I enjoy writing,” said George Carruth. “Currently my posts are centered around a new commission I am just finishing; a stone carving of Saint Clare of Assisi for a memorial garden. I have been documenting the entire project to give people an idea of what working in stone entails,” he added. According to George Carruth, the blog will be updated on a weekly basis by several writers and may include contests for blog subscribers and information about special events like artist signings.”We’re excited about this new project and see it as a natural way to connect with people who love art and enjoy my work.”
