Titanium arms and stainless steel riser.
Jeffery Laudenslager has taken the dramatic periods of perceived danger so interesting to George Rickey to an extreme in his elegant sculpture "Hokusai," and he expresses the predicament of the nearly colliding elements most eloquently, aided by the speed he gains using the extremely light-weight and resilient metal titanium. But it is the long, sweet release into graceful recovery that is Laudenslager's signature.
