Good Mornin’, Happy Day; Happy Day, Goin’ Fishin; A Plate Full of Love

Harold Rittenberry
Mild steel

From Athens, Georgia, artist Harold Rittenberry did not start making official art pieces until later in life. He began experimenting with a blowtorch, which led him to work primarily with metal, though he also creates drawings and mixed media works. He draws inspiration from the natural world, and different images in his work have different have meanings. Flocks of birds symbolize thought. Snakes symbolize wisdom.
