It’s All Because of Wayne
Hanging or Free-standing Sculpture
Stainless Steel and Phosphor Bronze – Bobbin Lace
9” H x 12” W x 12” D
I wanted to see the impact, if any, of one bronze edge on a ribbon of stainless steel lace. Indeed, the single bronze edge gives the eye a thin line to follow, in addition to the wide flat plane of the stainless steel. Once complete, I realized that the arrangements of the loose wire ends, and in fact, the overall form, suggest a hat. "It's All Because of Wayne" had inadvertently become a tribute to my friend Wayne Wichern, milliner extraordinaire.
