Karen Cusolito is a local sculptor whose mammoth works can be found at her West Oakland studio at American Steel. She is well known for sculptures made of scrap industrial pieces which often grace the Burning Man festival. In fact, Burning Man is this week out on the desert "playa" near Reno. This particular piece is called Passage and is 30 feet tall. Apparently fire or light is part of the spectacle of the piece when it's at Burning Man. Others of her work have been previously posted here, here, and here. This post is linked to the monthly meme sponsored by City Daily Photo---this month's theme being Curiosity, as in something unusual in your city.
