Call of the Wild, Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA. Materials: Willow
What drew me to this artist was the monumental scale of his works and how he used organic materials to replicate inorganic shapes. i love how he used his surroundings to his advantage, especially in call of the wild, where the pool of water looks like it cane from the huge water pitcher made of willow branches. i also love how his works look like nature is taking over modern day structures or inching in on civilized areas.
