Using reclaimed metal and plastic objects as materials, Fort Wayne artist Sayaka Ganz’s recent sculptures depict animals in motion with rich colors and energy. Her work is influenced by her where she was born – Yokohama, Japan.

Between 2002 and 2012, she taught design and drawing courses at Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne.

We recently filmed Ganz at TekVenture in Fort Wayne working on her latest marine mammal sculpture, a 16-foot long whale. When finished, the sculpture will be part of an exhibit at the Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Neb.
