Implements for Modern Farming
Dateline October/November 2020
In February I went to Newnan GA for a residency. I had access to historic molds from RD Cole manufacturing, which I painted and shaped into sculptures over the course of the month.These pieces needed little- the shapes, texture and even the color already spoke my language. I embellished each- simply, and in harmony with the natural beauty already present from their usage and history. A book looking at this and the history of Newnan is now available in my shop.
