Spirit of Freedom

This glass and metal sculpture is 10'h x 12'w x 7'd and weighs approximately 1200 pounds. I have been working with a new glass process using clear glass rather than stained glass, and adding images with sand and glass frit then sealed with a weather resistant epoxy. Some of the students and faculty from the Newaygo County Resource Center (NCRESA) were involved in the fabrication to educate and inspire the students in the hopes that they will consider their own Art Prize entry in the future. "Spirit of Freedom" speaks to the current situation of our endangered wild horses, our environment and to all people of all races facing threats to their freedom as individuals and communities.
