Krasl Daze The Herald-Palladium July 12, 2009 D.Warfield ...Chris and Robin Jaworski make art from more familiar stuff. They weld together steel parts of old farm machinery to create big sculptures of animals and plants, fit for the yard or to stand outside a barn. The couple have a barn-turned-studio at their home in Union, Michigan, in eastern Cass County. They keep some of their biggest creations in their own front yard. "We're trying to make it a destination for people," Robin said. the Jaworskis took first place in the sculpture category last year. Two of their larger pieces this year are "Troubador, "a five foot, crane-like bird welded together with steel plates, gears and springs; and "Katydid," a big bug built from the pieces of a cultivator. "I recognize most of this stuff. I grew up on a farm," said Lyle Woodworth of Stevensville, who was among the thousands of people attending the fair on Saturday. "It brings back old memories. It's pretty great."
