  2700°, 400°, 400° , Powder-coated cast iron, 2018  $2,200   2100° , Cast bronze on steel, 2018  $900  This piece (top) has been powder coated and then the perimeter has been removed using hand files leaving an inflamed exterior as if it were a scab. When a metal sculpture is painted for an outdoor setting, weep holes are placed into the paint to allow the water to escape. This is done predominantly in colder climates to prevent the metal and paint from cracking if the piece freezes. I felt that this poetic practice was really fitting for this landscape — a burnscar — since the land had recently been through so much trauma. The piece will now be able to weep, granting it some sort of healing release, leaving tiny rusty tears from its perimeter and porous surface.  The opening in the center is that of the Ojai Valley, not a lake, but a town that survived the massive wildfire.
