Iron works by Sean Bakken feature reclaimed metals blended seamlessly into new creations. The reformation of old iron gives a tangible soul to each piece while Bakken’s artistic intuition make his sculptures standalone pieces. The size of his works range from tabletop to foyer sized.
The Iron Mare incorporates metal from both auto and agriculture items, alluding to the strength of the horse. Its form seems to have a presence of its own. Long strands of chain hair form its mane and can move freely. With this touch of movement, Iron Mare has life. It holds a large space and would sit well in a foyer or lobby.
