Through many years of working, the way of creating my sculptures has changed, but two things remain constant: The work is inspired by human form; and it derives from weaving. The forms are irregular and more universal than specifics I hope they reflect the beauty of human frailty.
In a video by Bruce Murray, Dawn MacNutt discusses Caring, the bronze sculpture she created for the 100th Anniversary of Children's Hospitals in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
