BISCUIT
 
 
I have seen things so beautiful they brought tears to my eyes. Yet none of them can match the gracefulness and beauty of a horse running free.

Biscuit is made of some interesting things - motorcycle fuel tank, rabbit trap, monkey wrenches, bike sprocket, golf clubs, hay knives, piston rods, apple peeler, and biscuit cutter (cows make pies, horses make biscuits). The apple peeler along with the vertically striped hooves indicates his breed could be an appaloosa.

The bullet holes in his flank attest to the low value society placed in many of the rusty treasures he is made of. That is part of what draws me to make these works from things that have a history and a story more colorful than new materials I could use. It reminds me of how God chooses to use people society isn’t impressed with to accomplish greatness. It is not the raw material that matters as much as the way it is crafted.
