This rack is an abstracted radio tower inspired by the history of live radio shows and music in Nashville. This artwork stands approximately 12 feet high with its circles of radio waves and lightning bolts crowning the top of the tower.
Samantha's background in metals begins with a Master of Arts from Morehead State University and stints in places such as Bootknife Forge in Kentucky and Advance Casting in New Mexico. She is currently using five years of product design experience to render concept sketches, propose public works, and to work with clients interested in custom commissions.
“What interests me is the permanence of sculpture, the visual and physical touchability of the work and the physical involvement from design through fabrication."
Jen's material focus is primarily steel while incorporating copper, fibers, cement, stone and wood to flesh out the work.
