About this piece Margie wrote, "This new sculpture which will be on exhibited at Yard Dog beginning August 6 is smaller than most of my pieces. I am obsessed with making something small appear vast on the inside. I see it as a metaphor for truly understanding others, for problem-solving, or simply a vessel for feeding the curious in all of us. It all goes back to a lesson my dad taught me about looking from all perspectives to better understand a problem. He was talking about the lawnmower as he disassembled it to fix it. I took that lesson and carried it. That lesson is the foundation of my sculptural work. I want to build art that invites people to examine from all perspectives."
