JIMMY RIX: Suburb

Rammed Earth, dimensions variable $4500.00 or $900.00 each

I am very interested in sustainable architecture and the impending change in global temperatures. I would like to think that in the future we  will all use sustainable materials when building our homes for heating, cooling and aesthetic reasons.
As a sculptor I think it is important to consider sustainable materials when making sculpture. I like to make my work from the earth and to see it returning to the earth over time. I hope during the life of the sculpture it can create awareness in the beauty of our neglected earth.
