Artist of the Week: Mark Wagner

This morning I was watching Sunday Morning and saw a segment on the artist Mark Wagner. I have seen his work in person and it is incredible. Imagine only using one material to make art. Instead of feeling stuck by this constraint he explores each and every aspect of the material, every inch, every sliver, every last piece. Check out the video below and then leave a comment letting me know what you think.
