David Formanek's series "Tivertonumens" are bramble roots dug from his yard, stained, preserved in acrylic plastic, and mounted on polished plinths cut from local bedrock.
"Please Be Seated" are small-scale figural works cast in urethane resin or beeswax.
His poems and other texts hammered into lead sheets or engraved in stone compose the series "Dodonoids", while the "Benjamins" are quotes from Benjamin Franklin in the format of $100 bills.
