Sep 15, 2014
WVIK Staff

      A large-scale wood sculpture was created outside of the Figge Art Museum. 
      For the past month, Irish wood artist, Liam O'Neill has been turning a tree trunk into a wooden throne.  O'Neill transformed the outside of the Figge into his own woodshop, complete with a woodturning lathe he constructed out of concrete. He used to use chainsaws, sandblasting, and torching to turn the locally sourced tree trunk into a six-foot-long sculpture.
