Hard to choose between two versions of sculpting-with-found-objects so I will have to google other examples. And both British to boot!
Goldsworthy, definitely. Organic, natural, curvy, lovely.

Ugh, an apples to apples matchup. A tough call for me, but I'll lean slightly to ... Goldsworthy.

Cragg for me, Goldsworthy for Alison.

I really like both, and it looks like Goldsworthy is winning, so I'll place my vote for Cragg to make it a little less of a rout.

A tough decision, but Cragg gets my vote for that red one.

It's a bit of a beating for Mr. Cragg, as Goldsworthy gallops to a 12-3 advantage. To date, every Play-In artist has won in the First Round, but then that's probably what you'd expect, since they endured a grueling tournament to get here, and their competition put in a lackluster performance to get to the same place.

Onward! Thanks for your votes!
