Label Text:
Michelle Grabner’s sculpture and painting often draw upon everyday textiles to explore themes of patterning, symmetry, abstraction, and motherhood. This sculpture, a baby blanket cast in bronze, was made using the lost wax technique—a process that in this case destroyed the original, delicate fabric. By rendering the hand-made blanket in bronze—a traditional medium often reserved for heroic or memorial sculpture—Grabner gives meaningful permanence to this everyday domestic object.
