Black Rhino


This sculpture  is "one of a kind", It is not from a series. It is comprised of machine tools and other machine components. A Log splitting awl along with automotive bumpers, gears and parts, finish off the piece. The base is made of constructed welded steel. A dark patina and wax finish is then applied.


Sculptures by Lewis Tardy are one-of-a-kind pieces. Primary materials used are vintage, antique, scrap, re-purposed or discarded in nature. Corroded, blemished or oxidized metal provide texture, color and character that are sought after and intentional elements incorporated in my work. Natural patina’s and flaws are also noticed and creatively accepted in the final result. New, manufactured finishes and perfection should not be expected in this work.
