Description

A Great Tale features a boy sitting on a stump and reading to his dog; the stump was recycled from one of the oak trees lost to the construction of the library. The sculpture is made of wire mesh coated in papier maché, reinforced with fiberglass cloth and casting resin and painted in bright acrylic colors.

Horse and Reader, which sits on an oak pedestal, portrays a young girl reading a book while lying on her pony’s back; the artist’s niece modeled for this sculpture. The sculpture is made of wire mesh coated in papier maché, reinforced with fiberglass cloth and casting resin and painted in bright acrylic colors.
