Weeping Widow:

  • Ok, so my new concrete mix is: 
  • 3 parts white cement: 1.5 parts aggregate: 1.5 parts liquid…
  • *The 1.5 parts aggregate includes equal parts aragonite sand, silica sand, 3/4 inch glass fibres, perlite…
  • The liquid portion includes: 1/4 cement bond admixture to the rest of the parts water… 
  • Bonus notes: I got a nice synthetic kitchen apron for $1.49 at a convenience store that stayed open during the Taste of Danforth festival (we ended up eating at a $15.99 all you can eat Japanese restaurant ’cause the line-ups were too long for the delicious Greek food)…
  • I also wore my white Dream Control tie-back hat which is awesome & they make the best hats in the world,
  •  my Oakley Dartboard rose-tinted frameless sunglasses for eye protection,
  •  a really good quality face/nose dustmask, & 
  • concrete waterproof gloves from Kreitmaker…
  • My white cement is from Sutton Garden & Building Supply on Finch (only people in Toronto who have the small bags), 
  • my perlite too from Sutton,
  •  glass fibres from Kreitmaker also, 
  • Aragonite Sand from reptile section of Petsmart at Laird & Eglinton, White silica sand from Sutton again, 
  • cat litter boxes for mixing from Petsmart, 
  • cement Bond admixture from Home Hardware Building centre on Dupont West of Christie…

About GroveCanada

Artist Statement: I like to push...Push the fold...Innovate...Figure out how to do something then figure out how to do it even better...I get bored once I accomplish something...I can’t seem to make multiples...Once it is done, it is done ; I am not going to make another one...This can hurt profitability...But I feel the paradigm of repetitive production is obsolete...I see a future where pure intellectual innovation will be rewarded without the need to commercialize it somehow...I wonder about the Star Trek idea of a new culture where money is not the driving force...I live that future already... Bio: Sari is an optimist by nature, someone who always sees the sunny side of things, even if there is no sunny side really...She grew up with two wonderful parents & a great brother...Later she married the very best guy in the world, another artist named Joseph Grove...She likes art because it is for her a happy place to be...A place where joy can reside...So she decided to make art herself because that was the nicest thing she thought she could do for people’s lives...I’d tell you more about angst or strife or misery or struggling, but really, that was not the case...But perhaps, because I am Sari ; I am writing this, my perception is warped by my extreme positivity...But, to tell you the truth, life has been good... p.s.You can read more about my credentials on my main website at http://www.grovecanada.ca ...But I have left a few things out, credential-wise... My feeling is:"By their fruits, ye shall know them" which is from the New Testament, Book of Mathew(7, 16-20)... So read my books ; see if the fruit tastes good to you...I feel those are better credentials than telling you something on a resume... p.p.s. I am a Christian...Whatever that word means to you...
