This brass spider charm by Aidan Koch was sculpted in wax then cast in solid brass. While known for her work on paper, Koch also creates sculptures, ceramics, and textiles. The artist often references ancient artifacts and classical objects that are then reimagined and recreated by hand, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces of utility or beauty. Koch’s work was recently featured in the 2016 group exhibition Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016 at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
