Spring Fox by Janis Woode

Often in my work I will incorporate old pieces of metal that I have picked up from various places.  Junk yards, recycle stations and thrift stores are a few favourites. This old leaf spring and its irresistible curves grabbed my eye one day while cruising our local metal recycle station. Reconfigured and cleaned up it made perfect sense that it should support something or someone leaping upward.  Both the fox and the leaf spring share the quality of tenacity and in fact rely on that quality for their very survival. A parallel that unites them. – Janis Woode
