Akemi's Clock
8" x 14"

Tom L. DeHoog:

Years ago, I came across a large metal sculpture made with rusted steel banding in a florist shop. The piece, resembling a giant corroding chessboard, had a powerful effect and I wanted to create something similar. It was a mysterious coincidence that not long after that I came across discarded metal banding by the railroad tracks. Years of rain, sun and soil had given their surfaces a naturally deep rust and patina that seemed irresistibly beautiful to me. I made three pieces from that pile of twisted metal and my work in metal sculpture and metal weaving had begun.
