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.
