Description

View of bronze sculpture, "Cabin Creek" by Deborah Butterfield at the Meijer Sculpture Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. "Deborah Butterfield’s work focuses on the spirit and form of the horse as an intelligent mare rather than as a war horse which is usually illustrated in art. Cabin Creek is the name of the location where Butterfield found a variety of materials for this sculpture. First, she assembled the found materials to form an image of a horse. Then each piece of wood was meticulously translated into bronze, patinated, then reassembled. Such a process allows Butterfield to create works appropriate for outdoor placement"--Meijer Sculpture Gardens website.
