The Penstock Series is an early series that will continue for some time due to the volume of the resource. The specific penstock here served its industrial life as a penstock in the Saint George River alongside the Georges River Woolen Mill. This section of the river is tidal and I believe the erosion and corrosion were factors in the beautiful patina that the iron possesses. The wrinkles, rolls and creases created during the demolition of the mill have given this raw material much character. In addition to that, there are rivets!!! Big headed, corroded, stressed, beautiful rivets. It could be said that to date this is my favorite raw material in my lay down yard. There is much information about the special spirit in this raw material on the Sculpture Soup page.
