Oxidized Pod, welded mild steel, was created by Robert Koch. His large (72”) welded work exemplifies his love of nature. Using rigid and lifeless materials, his work centers solely on steel sculpture inspired by organic movements found in nature. Each piece attempts to challenge the inherent behavior of the materials as if to capture aspects from nature such as the movements of a leaf in the wind, the swaying of reeds, or even the split second a seed begins to germinate.
