American Saddlebred

We are currently working on an American Saddlebred Project for the organization “Shelby KY Tourism” in Shelbyville, KY. The horse will be full scale and will be executed in bronze plate. These images illustrate the process we are using to create the horse, which is mostly cold-forged with a treadle hammer. The piece will be open-framework with very gestural lines and shapes that create the body of the horse.
