Curler Pete

Dale Lewis
Minnesota
Materials: Mixed Metal & Found Objects
Selling Price: $7,500

Artist Statement:

The inspiration for this sculpture was a milk tank I thought looked like a curling stone. The tank was twice the size of an actual stone, so I just had to make the right sized curler. He has a beer keg head and Harley motorcycle engine casings for feet.

I named him in honor of Pete Fenson, skip of the rink that in 2006 won the first Olympic Curling medal for the United States.
