Artist and metalsmith Cathy McLure strips away the plush furry coats from motorized stuffed animals and then casts the disassembled plastic limbs in bronze, while living most of the mechanisms exposed. Cathy says, "The underlying plastic object embodies more potential for my imagination than the stuffed object layered with intricate marketing identities. It is these unstuffed plastic oddities that I reinvent in precious metals. "
