To all who have asked about and commented on this sculpture over time. I am delighted you like my work and with the ongoing discussion about the source of this piece, I'd like to add another comment. Hparks74, you are not wrong about the fact that it looks like a C Jere sculpture. I have seen the C Jere pieces in the flesh as well and know how similar they are. A C Jere piece would be a good alternative for someone with a limited art budget and a wall space that is not too large. However, this piece is not a C Jere piece and was attributed to a known NYC metal sculptor and made in the 70s. It's not a replica of this period. The C Jere pieces are smaller, lighter in weight, the finish and detailing is different when you look at it closely and they are metal only, while this Vintage piece has a much more refined detailing and amber glass inserts in some areas. Trying to find such a Vintage piece would be looking for a needle in the haystack, so C Jere might certainly be a good way to go. I hope this will clarify a few more things about this sculpture and help everyone to find the right piece for their respective home. Best, Dorothee.

It's made from nails that are used to put horse shoes on horses. It was a very common art use in the mid 60's to late 70's. C. Jere AKA Curtis Jere was a popular mid century artist that made many bronze sculptures. If you research him you will find various other artist from the same era. It is actually a fairly easy piece to replicate if you know a good artistic welder.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to From the Pros: How to Paint Interior Walls
Painting a dark color on walls. "Painting dark colors is more difficult and less forgiving than painting light colors," says Storey. Be prepared for three coats of paint — sometimes four — to get the proper dark hue on your walls.Deciding whether or not to prime is often an issue with dark paint colors. "When doing light to light or dark to dark, you don't usually need primer," says Rick Watson, manager of product information at Sherwin-Williams. Otherwise, you'll want to use a high-hiding primer that's designed for the material you're painting. Jordan recommends using a gray-shaded primer to help reveal a color's depth. "When a primer is tinted to the right shade of gray, light absorption and reflection find a harmonized balance, offering maximum top-coat coverage and great hiding and color vibrancy," she says. Again, painting technique is important. "Darker colors are fuzzier and are more likely to leave marks where they dry faster," says Davison. Since these colors can bleed, paint carefully and quickly. "Be more methodical than you would with a light color, as roller marks can be more apparent with a darker color," says Storey. He recommends using a roller with a shorter nap (3/8 inch to 1/2 inch) to make sure the paint is applied smoothly. Be careful not to put on too much paint in one coat, which can look uneven when it dries.
