Buffalo Bill Jr. Rocker

2012, Cardboard pulp, walnut, black tea dye, 24"w x 18"h x 8"d

This was my first attempt to design a rocking horse using a classic form. This piece is an extended experiment with cardboard pulp, building on previous models using this material. My aim was to use a natural dye to color the cardboard pulp. The pulp comprises 100 percent post-consumer cardboard. The cardboard is processed into a pulp and then packed by hand over an internal “skeleton” to realize its form.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
