Connie created this likeness of her littlest niece, Grace, in a class that she took called Concrete Camp with Sherri Warner Hunter in Bell Buckle Tennessee. She wanted to learn about structure and support for her work—that was definitely the place to go... Sherry is a world-class pro!
Grace was created with rebar, expanded metal, stainless wiring, fiberglass mesh, Styrofoam and polymer fortified concrete. She will last longer than the artist will! Connie used vintage rhinestones to capture the light in Grace’s eyes and a millefiori heart to represent her loving spirit.
