Blue Zig Zag - 2023

Typically, I don't use color in my sculpture but the nature of this series cried-out for it! This piece is a duplicate from a series of five pieces made for a park that reflects the Polish history of the neighborhood in Toledo. With this series I decided to experiment with the application of vinyl wraps instead of a complicated paint scheme.
