Pel. wool. 2012. (20.25" x 8.25" x 9.5")
If I were to curate a catalog for the above piece, I would invite contribution from someone who would provide historical and/or contemporary context to the elements of the work. In the catalog an anthropologist would speak to the cultural roots of wool and the anvil, as well as how these concepts have been developed over time and are prevalent today. I would invite a story or narrative from someone on a contemporary shearing team and someone who has worked on a historical preservation site (theme park or attraction) in the practice of blacksmithing.
