One of a series of art pieces made on large wooden electrical spool ends, this was originally conceived as a trumpet flower and it took on a life of it’s own.
The metal portion is made up of four pieces- a flywheel from a 1971 Ford truck, a gear found at the Albright farm stead, a copper wound speaker from an antique TV, and a small gear, all from the same farm.
The paint brush handles are from my shop, and the rusty metal band is also found on a barn on the Cedar Gtove farm.
I salvaged the spool in Chapel Hill behind an electrical contracting business.
This piece is approximately 28″ in diameter and 1.5″ thick.
