Horsepower is an experimental piece using horse hair. Over the past year, I have been interested in processing and experimenting with natural materials. I have access to horse hair and wanted to see how I could incorporate it into my series of beaded hubcaps. The horse hair is emphasized by the beads mimicking its use.
