Luce Center Label

Frank Cummings takes several weeks to select his materials and plan his piece before mounting it on the lathe. Lady Lace with New Shoes incorporates ivory, gold, and onyx in a lavish band that draws the viewer’s eye from the smooth surface of the lower part to the delicate open shape resting like a crown on the top.
