A major redo of an earlier post – a look outside and inside the studio with the airplane crashing into the roof near Picante.
Izzy Sher’s sculpture is the work of an autodidact genius. Rust constantly modifies the sculpture – just as Izzy intended.
The woman behind those quirky installations on Webster. Her installations, and her studio and her quirky collage art.

A collection of measuring devices, displayed publicly and in many cases used as lawn art.
Mail boxes, weathervanes, and lawn art. Cows and pigs. That about says it all.
