Cal Lane's art work

For Shadow Shot Sunday I give you a sample of Cal Lane's sculptural work.  She is the daughter of a friend of mine and is making her living in New York City creating amazing lace work from cast off metal objects.  The image above was taken at her mother's house where this sculpture hangs on the wall creating a lovely shadow.  You can see it was made from a gas can. 

Here are some of Cal's other works, using wheelbarrows, shovels, oil drums and even bigger sculptures.  I love the way Cal transforms these rough objects into beautiful lace with her welding torch. 

Cal is making it with her artwork and I'm so happy to hear about it. I'm always thrilled to hear that people can make a go of it with their vision.   Here's a link to her website if you'd like to see more of this brilliant and creative artwork.

  1. Wow! Cal Lane's work is beautiful! I'm glad to hear that she makes a living from her art as she certainly is amazingly talented!

  2. PS - Your shadow shot link in Mr Linky was going to another one of your posts, so I just edited it now to link to this one :)

  3. Oh, Joanna, these are wonderful! The wheelbarrow is my favorite. I have a love affair with wheelbarrows and anyone who can make lace with one - that's just amazing.

  4. beautiful art work, and great shadow shots!

  5. What fantastic artwork! Perfect for shadows, too!

  8. I think that these are simply stunning. I like the shadow shots and the metal sculptures are so beautiful. I have seen some similar to this in a fair trade store from other countries, in Africa, made from oil drums but not so elaborate and lacey. Very nice.


I really appreciate your comments.
