Object Name Sculpture
Description Thiele attended East Carolina University where he received his MFA in wood design, studying under Terry Smith. He currently lives in Western NC. Four Stringed Escargot is constructed of refurbished hardwood from buildings around Greenville. Thiele's work in wood is dominated by musical instruments, many of them oversized. The time consuming details he has lavished on Four Stringed Escargot makes it a work of art as well as a piece for music making.
