This reading tree sculpture collaboration between the talented Lucas Brinkerhoff and I will live in the Illinois Valley children’s library.
These steel pieces from the reading tree piece were a whole new world of creating designs to then cut them out with a plasma cutter and grinder. The final step was banging away at them with hammers in a vice to bring out their curvature. Missed paintbrushes for just a minute.
We like to think that whatever is read under the reading tree will never be forgotten.
