I often make jokes about holding something decrepit together with “duct tape and baling wire.” So when I got the chance to use baling wire in one of my sculptures, I found the opportunity irresistible.
My penchant for functional art, in this case, resulted in ‘Don Carlos the string dispenser,’ at your service when you need some twine.
Thanks to Barry George, found object- and kinetic-sculpture artist extraordinaire, he showed me how to manipulate 16-gauge sheet metal. Barry is absolutely brilliant. To have access to his expertise, which he shares so willingly and selflessly, is a priceless opportunity.
