Description

Metal cowgirl with single braid, baby blue western shirt, textured leather hat, and skull shoulder detail. This tactile, 3D sugar skull Vaquera is a metal wall sculpture assembled from hand-cut recycled tin on wood background. Her hat is crafted from repurposed cowboy boots, purses and football leather. Ready to hang with wire on back.

  • Medium: hand-cut metal applied to wood
  • Size: 43" H x 33" W x 2" D
  • Hardware: ready to hang with wire on back
  • Part of a limited series each produced with a unique set of rescued materials

The Process

This gal was created using vintage and found metal I gathered up from all over the West and Southwest. I typically scavenge through old abandoned barns and ranches, even old dumps in the desert that have been sun bleached and windblown. I bring these scavenged materials back to my studio and start hand-cutting the metal with tin snips and metal shears, affixing each individually cut piece onto a wooden background to create the finished sculpture. This series of Vaqueras are inspired by Mexican and Western folklore, each of the gals serving as an inspirational badass protector for your home or ranch.

The Story

This gal feels especially unique in the Vaquera series with her unusual leather hat. Some of my best finds come from the smallest and most obscure thrift stores. One of my favorite treasures? Old leather purses. And cowboy boots. Boy, do I love leather goods! On a recent sojourn into a tiny secondhand store in a tiny mountain town en route to an art festival, I came across some of the most wonderfully worn and well-loved handbags and one perfect pair of boots. They have found new life - after a journey home in the truck - handcut, refinished and perfectly layered, here in Baby Blue's hat, alongside a vintage football I'd been saving for just the right piece.
