The braid is a constant theme for Hartfield. Inspired by a childhood spent caring for horses and being enamored with their thick, strong braids. A braided material is always stronger than the material alone. A great metaphor for life.
This piece in an experiment in hand-forming the wax model and was created without the use of tools.
An elegant and organic piece that bears the signs of the maker, perfectly imperfect.
