Born and raised in San Diego, Deborah Butterfield first began creating sculpture in the form of a horse in the 1970’s using mud, clay and sticks. In 1977, she moved to a ranch in Montana and in 1979 began using scrap metal and found steel. For the past decade, she has been making bronze work, cast from “stray, downed pieces of wood.”
Butterfield carefully, intuitively, selects the branches and sticks which are used to “draw” her horses.
