Large Imagine Series: Stampede

4,000.00

Stampede is a wall piece within Webber's Imagine Series which is composed entirely out of hand sawn coins.  Stampede features animals, trees, birds and hills sawn out with a basic jeweler's saw from American and foreign coins. This artwork spotlights bison from buffalo nickels which were struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. The coin was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser as part of a drive to beautify the coinage with new coin designs between 1907 and 1909. This meticulous coin hand-work is Webber's signature technique within her found-object artworks.  Imagine Series: Stampede wall piece is a limited edition of 10 in which each design within the edition is unique, no two are repeated exactly, making it a one-of-a-kind artwork in which each piece is titled, signed, and dated by the artist on the back of the piece. The stunning Imagine Series' circular metal frames are fabricated in Webber's studio with welded steel and measure 23" x 23" x 2".  The dark grey metal highlight the metal of the coins in this magnificent, eye-catching artwork.

Imagine Series: Stampede is an original artwork by Philadelphia based artist, Stacey Lee Webber.  Webber's work has been curated into the permanent collections of The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery in Washington DC, the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton MA, the Metal Museum in Memphis TN, the international Kamm Teapot Foundation and numerous private art collections around the world.
