I had a lot of fun making a golf club head and some other found objects into a Chihuahua. The "Big Bertha" golf club head adds a hint of irony as well. Continue reading "Chihuahua"
One of a series of art pieces made on large wooden electrical spool ends, this was originally conceived as a trumpet flower and it took on a life of it's own. The metal portion is made up of four pieces- a flywheel from a 1971 Ford truck, a gear found at the Albright farm stead, a copper wound speaker from an antique TV, and a small gear, all from the same farm. The paint brush handles are from my shop, and the rusty metal band is also found on a barn on the Cedar Gtove farm. I salvaged the spool in Chapel Hill behind an electrical contracting business. This piece is approximately 28" in diameter and 1.5" thick.
