Chaz Kaiser & Andrea Grimsley
"Holzhacker Buam" (Woodman Guys) was the second art piece developed from the NEA OUR Town grant. Local artists, Chaz Kaiser and Andrea Grimsley, designed their tribute to our city’s founders and heritage based on European cuckoo clock elements. They used 16 gauge aluminum, the pieces were hand-cut and formed by hand (using repousse’ technique) hammered into the desired dimensional shapes, welded together, primed and hand painted to create a truly unique installation. This piece is installed in downtown Batesville on the Baxter (formerly Hill-Rom) Training Center.
