Ferrous Couture, Robert Koch

Dyad, Martha Walker
Dyad, a welded steel abstract plant sculpture, was created by artist Martha Walker. Her metal sculptures often express something deep and personal. Her large (6’10”) ‘Dyad’ is based on the scientific double helix and associated with romantic love. Her process of dripping liquid steel one drop at a time in order to build up massive forms allows for a unique combination of texture and line rarely seen in steel. Read about the artist.
Punch and Punch Line, Fitzhugh Karol
Fitzhugh Karol creates abstract sculptures of wood and metal that evoke hills, valleys, steps, and portals—elements of real, imagined, and remembered landscapes. Whether monumental or intimate, each sculpture combines a playful vocabulary of geometric forms to draw and strengthen connections between people and the landscape. His large-scale outdoor sculptures both imitate and interrupt the landscape, and all his work suggests links between natural and man-made forms, inviting viewers to contemplate the ways in which humans impact the world around them.

Sandalphon, Harry Gordon
Sandalphon, created in 2010 using black granite, is meant to become one with the environment which surrounds it. Using a crane to create his granite sculptures, Gordon believes that his work is not complete until it is viewed by the public. “It is as if they get their batteries charged with each person that sees them.” Read about the artist.
Tulipula, Babette Bloch
Tulipula, a 78” x 53” x17” stainless steel piece featuring tulips, is cut from a single sheet of metal. It is installed at Sculpture Trail site number 5. “Babette Bloch’s masterful use of a grinder as a paintbrush makes the flowers strikingly three-dimentional,” said Scott Broadfoot, curator of A Sculpture Trail. “When seen in soft light with the sunken hollow of the riverbed behind it, the sculpture appears as if it’s glass or lucite. In the early afternoon when the sun suffuses it with warm light, TILIPULA reflects the vibrant colors of the foliage surrounding it.” Read about the artist.
Oxidized Pod, Robert Koch
Oxidized Pod, welded mild steel, was created by Robert Koch. His large (72”) welded work exemplifies his love of nature. Using rigid and lifeless materials, his work centers solely on steel sculpture inspired by organic movements found in nature. Each piece attempts to challenge the inherent behavior of the materials as if to capture aspects from nature such as the movements of a leaf in the wind, the swaying of reeds, or even the split second a seed begins to germinate.

Morning Dialogue, an Italian marble sculpture measuring 19” x 14” x 14”, was created by Ulla Novina. Together the stone and Ulla tell a story. Stone is star stuff and of the ages.

When she is successful, self and stone are held in a shared embrace. Read about the artist.
In Awe of Light, Patricia Lavin & John Richie
Ring Top Tower, Joel Perlman
This is a special sculpture for the artist and remained in his personal collection for twenty years. About ten years ago Mr. Perlman decided to add the rings to the top as he had introduced circles to his work. He liked the result and sees this piece as a journey from hard edge to fluid motion.” Read about the artist.
Sail, Ken Hiratsuka
Hiratsuka’s stone works are characterized by maze-like designs of infinite variation, always formed by one continuous line that never crosses itself. He often refers to his works as “fossils of movement.” They are both modern and ancient, a symbol of human communication through universal language on the surface of the earth as one huge rock. Read about the artist.
Magic in the Air, Jeffrey Breslow
“This is a kinetic sculpture that was created to captivate the viewer’s attention with the subtle motion. The sculpture uses slight breezes of wind and the flexibility of thin steel rods to create movement of the eight small granite stones. The granite stones are in contrast to the 1,500 pound base boulder that is green serpentine that comes from a very small hidden quarry in the green mountain state of Vermont.” Read about the artist.
