Talented sculpture artist Deborah Butterfield has recently created a new batch of her striking equestrian horse sculptures. Butterfield creates these pieces using recycled tree branches she finds in nature. By working the with natural curve and grooves of each wooden piece, she works to create one fluid and delicate line. I cannot possible imagine how difficult it is to work with the sharp and often unmanageable branches. How she manages to make the pieces of wood fit together without whittling them down or preparing them is true artistry.

Deborah Butterfield has found a way to bring honor to these beautiful creatures in nature, and her use of eco-friendly tools is just another testament to her creative mind. Her sculptures are available through purchase and can been seen through various art exhibitions around the city of New York.
