Tara is a composite of recycled machine parts, hinges, hardware, keys, locks, door handles, stainless steel, cable, chain, gears, cogs, copper, brass, hints of glass, tools and old artifacts immaculately blended. She is a medley of non-traditional materials which were all collected from local San Francisco businesses that have either vanished or changed hands. 80% of the materials used for Tara were recycled.
