He was a Wisconsin artist who worked in scrap, both enormous 300 ton sculptures, including a giant bird orchestra, to small (an army of one foot robots). He was one of the masterminds behind House on the Rock, and I will miss him. No word on what will happen to his sculpture garden (it is on rented ground).
