In a very fine example of an artist at work (work, work, work, work), Becca Barnet posted the following video of her finishing a piece for the upcoming NoMo Butcher & Bee space. Barnet, proprietor of fabrication studio Sisal & Tow, said she and her team used 8,120 copper nails for a large rendition of the B&B logo for the 1085 Morrison Dr. location. "It hurts our fingers," she stated, "but we are thrilled with the outcome." The piece weighs 185 pounds.
Hit play to see all those nails go in at a sped up pace.

If you think Barnet's work looks familiar, you've probably seen her installation, mural, and taxidermy work at The Ordinary, Leon's Oyster Shop, the former Butcher & Bee, Harold's Cabin, and many other dining rooms around town.
