POTHOLE POSITIVES

This ongoing series of bronze sculptures are made from the casts of the negative space of potholes. These are the positive forms made from the negative holes in the roads, which themselves were made through a process of precipitation, freezing and thawing in asphalt. A regular but disruptive feature in the Pittsburgh landscape, these casts are spectacular monumental fillings for these un-monumental holes. The bumpy side is formed by the rocks in the pothole while the smooth side is polished to echo the shiny surface of a bronze Brancusi.
