Two Cut Bronze

Bronze sculpture by Larry Frazier. Multi shaped posibilties ... a puzzle if you will!
"I carved this piece originally in redwood – you can see the grain, captured in the bronze. My math teachers showed me what happens when you cut a mobius strip in half, right down the middle – it’s still one piece. Though it is known among mathematicians, I hadn’t heard what happens if you make your cut one third of the way in from the edge. This is what happens. It looks like three pieces, but the “two outer pieces” in fact are connected to each other, and the center piece is linked with the outer piece, loose, but linked like two links of a chain. Not easy to carve; fragile in wood".
This piece is number 6 of 25; completed 2009.

Price: 3600.00

Larry Frazier was a math / science major in high school, fortunate enough to have excellent math teachers who would show students the magic of Mobius strips, even though they weren’t in the text books. Besides the top-flight math teachers, the school’s literature teachers were inspiring enough that he decided to go to Liberal Arts College, rather than an engineering school. This small private school required all students to give art a try. Without any previous art interest, he was tossed, at random, into the school’s sculpture’s class, and fell in love. Sculpture was his focus that school year, and he went on to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts at San Francisco Art Institute.

Then the river went underground, surfacing a little, if at all, for quite a few years. About ten years ago, the beauty of exotic woods got him back into sculpting, and then he discovered the translucence and delicacy of alabaster. From art school days on, he has enjoyed pushing materials to the limit, taking his work thinner than any experienced sculptor would advise.
