Martha Markline Hopkins's Sculpture

Click on for a larger picture.

Per Martha Ann:

"Here is 'Progression,' my sculpture, under a maple tree in my yard."

"It is composed of 9 sections of burnished and bent aluminum tubing, 4' x 7' x 4' connected by a rod and welded in place. I had the tubes bent in Birmingham. at Brooks Welding. The company is one of the few companies in the U.S. who bend tubing. Those bending machines are interesting to watch; they groan and squeak when bending, and sometimes the tubes crack.
