Mixed Assemblage
2010

$400

As you can see, I like circles and the play of color and light. One of my goals was to make it light weight and to occupy, but not visually overpower, a large space.

I began by playing with the arc and its relationship with the base.

Where I didn’t weld, I joined parts in this sculpture with “found” electrical copper wire, stripped of its plastic coating. I trapped the glass by joining two metal rings with wire.

I like the ability of the chains to twist and turn. Making them from “found” acrylic strips was quite labor-intensive. I cut what were scraps, then drilled, sanded and polished each piece.

“Found” leaves accent the base. The hooks are cut from “found” spirals.

I later added a strand and redirected the three to a patterned joining of the arch. I like the interaction of the various circles and spaces and the play of the ruby colored glass and acrylic.
