8. Relic No. 32
Artist: James Dee Warren
Hometown: Salina, KS
Year completed: 2013
Description of piece:
I used objects found on Kansas farms to build a form of repeating shapes anchored around a central axis created from old copper pipe. The stone is unaltered and appears just as found. Glass is added in the chiseled hole and added to the top for a repeating element.
