As a contemporary metal smith, Stacey Lee Webber cherishes working with found materials whose history is physically evident. Her work is often described as meticulous, pushing the boundaries of everyday recognizable objects to the point of unidentifiable. Through material, she strives to make artwork that interests a broad range of viewers and challenges their preconceived notions of the objects that surround them. Webber’s sculpture is often painstakingly laborious which she uses as a continuous theme throughout her work. Webber’s objects are haunting celebrations of liberty and labor.
