Yard Dog by Don Kennell

30 Oct

Meet Don Kennell sculptor and artist from Santa Fe, New Mexico, the creative force behind “Yard Dog” a giant dog sculpture made out of corrugated sheet metal and powder coated steel frames. The functional work of art graces parks and recreational areas in America and comes complete with a porch swing, hanging from the dog’s belly to provide a shady spot to sit in. The sculpture stands 12 feet tall, 25 feet long and 8 feet wide. It’s made from welded and powder coated steel frames on which the sculptor bolted corrugated steel sheets. To prevent injury, steel edges have been folded under steel flanges and a UV resistant lacquer protects the piece from the harsh elements.
