Japanese artist Sayaka Ganz uses discarded and reclaimed household objects to create animal sculptures made of plastic spoons, spatulas and other reclaimed objects. Ganz’ love of animals is demonstrated in her exhibit which focuses on animals in motion.  Ganz classifies her work as “3-dimensional impressionism.”  Produced by David J. Wagner LLC.
