Orchard : “Metal sculptures are popular in New Mexico. My mom had a Road Runner that I threatened to kidnap. She eventually relented and I put it out in the courtyard of the small apartment unit I live in. When it snowed its little feet got stuck on the rocks so I took it in. Come spring, I put it out again, but then didn’t want someone to kidnap it. So I put it in my back yard. My neighbor asked about its whereabouts. Love it that a neighbor is concerned about a foot tall metal piece.”

Sherri Steinert-brown : “Great idea with the colors on the tail”

Lesbitarian Lady : “Nut and bolts, nuts and bolts, we got screwed. Whoops, that just suddenly popped into my head. I’m seeing all of these and they’re looking like the pieces came from a hardware store explosion. I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. I’m loving all of these. We want to see more, please”
