False Magic

by James C. Christensen

In the fantastic world of James C. Christensen’s paintings, fish are a symbol of magic and wisdom. “Their floating presence in the air reminds us that anything is possible,” says Christensen, “and those touched or surrounded by fish are considered truly blessed. When the fish don’t arrive, however, sometimes a person will take matters into his own hands, with compelling but less-than-convincing results.

“When The Greenwich Workshop first approached me about transforming False Magic into a bronze sculpture I was surprised, but it turned out to be a brilliant idea. As soon as we had constructed the rigging I knew it was going to be great; the creative work and art of many people have taken False Magic and made it real magic.” Meticulously crafted, superbly detailed and stunningly translated into three dimensions, this sculpture will provide real magic wherever it finds a home.

Sleeping Beauty

by Scott Gustafson

“When the king learned that his precious princess Briar Rose had been cursed to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and sleep for a hundred years,” says Scott Gustafson, “he commanded every single one of the ominous devices in the kingdom to be destroyed. And so they were—except for one….

“It is exactly one century to the day and a young prince has come to see for himself if the ancient, thorn-shrouded castle is truly enchanted.Tiptoeing past the sleeping guards and up the grand staircase, he enters a darkened chamber.The mists of time swirl about his feet as light sifts through the overgrown windows. Drawing back the heavy curtain, he falls instantly in love with the sleeping princess who has been waiting, just for him, for one hundred years.”
