Red Branch

Sculpture by Deborah Butterfield, Red Branch, 2007. Butterfield constructs her sculptures from found pieces of wood and this bronze is made to resemble tree branches twisted, intertwined and welded together in the shape of a horse. The sculpture was first created from pieces of manzanita wood and then photographed before being disassembled and sent to the foundry where the pieces are cast in bronze and soldered back together. The bronze has been painted a deep red color to evoke the natural color of the wood.
