The sculptures of Jodi Carlson are detailed in Inventory, ordered by year. Scroll through to see how the work has developed. You will see a consistent interest in how the sculpture interacts with the outdoors and landscapes. My work lends itself to collaboration with Landscape Designers because it is both durable and organic.

Many of the pieces have become larger and more substantial as time has passed. My skills as a welder have developed, and I’ve become more and more interested in having my work in settings as Public Art.

I have a number of sculptures that I call creatures . . . some human forms, some animal forms. A number of these were created as commissions. Contact me at jlcarlson@optonline.net or 845-216-1012 if you have an idea for a commission.

There are a number of swirly sculptures that I categorize as Arabesques. I find these the most exhilarating to make, and if you could see into my mind while I’m composing my work, my mental energy would probably look like one of these Arabesques.

Sculptural reliefs are here as well. These are suitable both for indoor and outdoor settings. Let’s mount one onto your building (e. g., Under The Sea [2007], owned by the (Clifton Arts Center in Clifton, NJ), and see how your expanses of walls come alive!
