Elephants have made their way to Shelburne Museum! Visitors to the museum’s Circus Building, the horseshoe-shaped home to Roy Arnold’s 129-piece miniature circus parade, are greeted by 3 large elephant sculptures made by local Vermont artist Kat Clear. These near life-sized sculptures are made of metal from old objects like wrecked cars, fuel tanks, and wheelbarrows.
Who knows what you’ll find! At Shelburne Museum’s Education office, Paige had all sorts of fun finding different objects to use.
After seeing all the different odds and ends she collected, Paige was a little unsure where to start. But after giving it some thought and slowly starting putting pieces together….
She created a fish! To put her sculpture together, Paige used toothpicks, duct tape, Elmer’s glue, and even some hot glue for the big eye. If you’re using hot glue at home, be sure to have an adult help you. Or skip the glue altogether and use objects from your odds and ends pile to keep your sculpture together.
