Figures in Motion

Artist: Jack Howard-Potter

Home City: New York City

Venue: Fifth Third Bank/Warner Norcross & Judd LLP

Medium: Galvanized and powder coated steel

What was your inspiration for the piece?

After years of studying the human anatomy and figure drawing, Potter “wanted to translate that anatomy into steel”.

How long did it take to create?

The large, central figure took about five months, while the smaller sculptures took about 6-8 weeks.

What were some challenges?

It was costly and time consuming to bring the sculptures in from New York City. The central sculpture required a crane to install it in its place.

What will he do with the money if you win?

“I’d make bigger sculptures,” Jack Howard-Potter said. He would also like to defer the cost of building and transporting the sculptures.
