My newest piece - An altered, cast iron Victorian woman door stop from the 1920's forged by the American Foundry company. I used a metal grinder and removed one of her arms, built a delicate wire armature, then sculpted a replacement arm out of epoxy jewelers putty. Her new arm, defiantly thrust in the air with clenched fist shows the tenacity, strength and resilience of the many generations of women after acquiring the 1920 right to vote. We still have a lot of battles ahead of us but we are fierce and most importantly we are UNITED.
We’ve come a long way baby!
