This sculpture is decorated with gray and white paint accented with gold. Hybridized concrete was used to create the bridle and harness, which are studded with glass medallions. The medallions are bas-relief carved casts of Seattle icons: the Space Needle, coffee and of course, the Market. The result, a beautifully crafted and realistic seat on a carousel.
Primarily a sculptor, Stephanie works in kiln-cast lead crystal using the "cire perdu" (lost wax) method as well as concrete. Both of these methods call for a great deal of patience and planning, but produce a result that is colorful, glowing and beautiful.
