Shovels, 2005 by Cal Lane at Foley Gallery
Wheel Barrel, 2005 by Cal Lane at Foley Gallery
Artist Cal Lane created these awesome knockout steel sculptures out of a set of regular shovels and wheelbarrow:
Knockout steel sculptures with a lacy touch. Lane, a certified welder and graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, wields an industrial blowtorch as if it were a crochet hook, burning dainty, intricate designs into heavy metal. The artist's signature Steel Doilies and monumental, "crocheted" I-beams elegantly perforate traditional masculine realms of art and architecture with feminine craft.
