vra.workdescriptionThe inspiration for the Steel House was a sculpture Bruno had made two years earlier, also of weathering steel but with a burnt orange patina. A four-legged construction the size of a small elephant, it has the appearance, depending on your angle of approach and frame of mind, of a lumbering pachyderm, an automatic pistol or some kind of vehicle from Star Wars, though it predated that space epic by a good five years. It sat in a field outside of Lubbock until it was moved to the Texas Tech University campus in 2015.
