Brad Story: Aerodreams Sculpture
My dad, a former wooden boatbuilder, is now a sculptor. I've made a website to display his work, which I think is abstract and fascinating. (The sculpture, not the website.)

If you're especially taken with it, you can see the piece Metamorphosis at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition's spring show, now through March 28th.

Those kick ass. Brilliant.

It would be cool to see the artist at work, the workshop, pieces in progress, and the process. Oh, and a whole lot more of the sculptures.

He reminds me of George Hart. I am not sure why.

Nice enough site, btw. Not the usual flash traps you see.

I wanted to make the site very straightforward to edit as it's actually my mom who updates it when new pieces are photographed. Also, I hate that most art sites are all Flash.

Small world filter: my Dad's best friend from childhood is married to artist's sister. Fond childhood memories of seeing the Story boatyard in action- cracking the bottle of champagne at the launch of this huge wooden craft. That was in the late 70s, and even then I remember mummers of how building in wood was an anachronism. These sculptures are an amazing adaptation of practical talents. My folks, rather obsessed with the image crows, have one of his crow sculptures, though I've yet to make it back to New England to see it in real life.

So your Dad's best friend must be my Uncle Frank? Small world indeed!

The work is stunning and you did a fantastic job with the website. The artwork photography is also excellent.

I noticed a small typo - in the link to your e-mail address on the About page (where it says "Site design by..."), there is a period at the end of the mailto link, which makes the e-mail address incorrect.

Your father's work is beautiful!! I appreciate the simplicity of the site you set up for him.

I was knocked out by the sculptures and I was really thankful for the lack of Flash.

It might just be me but I nearly missed the link to the extra photos. If that could be a bit more prominent, all would be perfect.
