Jon Wolfe, 40 F. S., 1987, glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Carol and Don Wiiken, 1999.57.4
Glass artist Jon Wolfe explored the erosion of man-made structures in his "F.S." series. Short for fabricated structures, the "F.S." series examines how man often uses natural structures to reinforce man-made ones. In 40 F.S., the sculpture is leaning yet appears solid, emphasizing the artist's idea that natural elements combined with fabricated ones are stronger than the forces that act to level them.
