Sculptor Robin Tost creates colorful, whimsical ‘full metal quilts’ out of recycled automobile parts and cast off metal. The idea for her signature style began during a biking trip across Vermont through a region devastated by factory closings. She noticed women selling quilts to supplement their family income and was inspired to create sculpture transforming old, hard recycled metal (a ‘man’s material’) into a form associated with women’s fiber work. Inspired by traditional quilt patterns, Tost cuts the metal, punches it with a drill press, and sews the pieces together with wire. The exhibition includes a dozen of her metal quilts as well as her large scale animal sculptures, Spirit Bear and Phoenix.
