Kreative Finds: Janet Echelman Sculpture Overview

Echelman’s sculptures have an undeniably ephemeral quality. Fluid, ever changing, and completely at mercy to the elements, her sculptures encapsulate the tumultuos and textured history of every society and every landscape that they are a part of – they are at once completely harmonious and at odds with their environment.
