Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Renowned for her public commissions and intricate wire sculptures, Ruth Asawa was an activist and sculptor, often drawing on nature and geometry as the inspirations for her work.

Ruth Asawa

Asides from her work with wire, Asawa created a number of fountains for the city of San Francisco; one of her most renowned fountains is situated near Union Square – for this piece, she had 200 school-children use dough to create hundreds of images of the city, the dough was then cast in iron as a solid creation. (Artist website) Read More
