Below we are presenting a selection of artwork from her series The Craftsman. Totally made from recycled materials and more specifically coins and hardware.
“I cherish working with found materials whose history is physically evident. On that stamped coin there are dents, scratches, a dull patina, and a worn down Abraham Lincoln, It has been passed through countless hands.” Stacey Lee Webber.
