Mike's Ribbon of Steel #8 "Woman with Child" is currently in Lakeland Florida. We were excited to be in Florida and even more excited to be chosen Best in Show. Here is what Holly Keris wrote about "Woman with Child":
Most notably, Woman with Child (Ribbon of Steel #8) by Michael Russell features a curvaceous continuity of metal, delicately balanced, with a graceful gesture. Scrap steel juxtaposes with softness of the flowing lines and the subtle motion of the sculpture. The ribbon embraces itself and the viewer, drawing in on itself protectively while extending towards those nearby, inviting interaction.
