TITLE: A Rocking Bone
MEDIUM: pine, popular, maple and walnut
DIMENSIONS/RUN TIME: 19 1/2″ x 10″ x 16″
DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: In 2004, I designed and built my first rocking horse prototype in my workshop at “798 Art District of Beijing”. It’s twice size bigger than this one I’d just made. I made many of them and it’s seen people love my rocking horse, so I decide to make one here in Madison. I collected all kinds of wood in the wood shop trash at the Art Department. Then decided to make a small one as a gift to the coming International Children’s Day.
