You may recall the steel dolphin being made in Vivian Beer’s fall iron class (see October 20, below). Well it was finished a few days ago, fitted with a saddle, mounted in a large steel ring, and hung from the bridge crane (which moves back and forth through the studio). The iron class hosted a party on Saturday night that included dolphin rides. Here’s Penland’s communications manager Robin Dreyer testing it out. (Photo by Vivian Beer).
Here is the beautiful thing by itself.
