Slow As You Go

Dale Lewis
Minnesota
Materials: Steel & Copper
Sponsors:
Mankato Area Foundation
Selling Price: $10,000

Artist Statement:

I thought about making a sloth climbing on my tree; when I realized that copper wire hair would patina to perfect sloth color, it was a plan.
Sloths are funny; they are the only animals with hair growing away from their feet.
When I was working on the claws, I thought, “I could have made a two-toed.”
