Kolle Kahle Riggs' unique pieces result from a combination of her formal arts education (MFA from Kansas State Univ.) and her formal outdoor survival skills education taught by her father, "naturalist, artist, writer, herpetologist, anthropologist, experimental archaeologist, excellent housekeeper, curmudgeon, tragically tone deaf music appreciator, great hugger, and teacher" Jim Riggs.
- Kinetic Elderberry Stick Sculpture" (13.25" x 6" x 6") This sculpture will not cure Covid 19, but it might be nice to look at on your bedside table if you are unlucky enough to get sick. The artist found an elderberry stick that had pretty bark. She then cut it up into many pieces. She realized she liked it better as a stick and made a sculpture out of it by adding brackets to all the segments and reassembled it in its original order. Each piece has the ability to swivel and show various added details at the cross sections. Materials: Elderberry stick with pretty bark, Brass, Resin, Copper, Pretty rocks
- "Rock Product" (7" x 2.5") A small sculpture made from a package originally containing earbud replacement covers. The round compartments that once held the earbud covers now contain some of the artist's favorite tiny rocks embedded in resin. The resin provides a slight magnification that really shows off the patterns and colors of the tiny rocks. Materials: disposable consumer packaging, Nickel silver, resin, pretty rocks
