Cayce, South Carolina: 16-Foot-Tall Wireframe AT-AT

An AT-AT walker from "Star Wars" was sculpted out of wire by artist John Sharpe in Sep. 2015. He plans to keep it outdoors so it will rust. He likes rust.

16-Foot-Tall Wireframe AT-AT

AT-AT is there, along with two X-wings and a Tie fighter. Also a spaceship pedal-car. Went on a Sunday so the business was closed. Would love to go back and see their pottery.

Star Wars wireframe.

When we went no one was there; it was on a Saturday afternoon. Nothing new about the AT-AT, but in the yard there's also a wireframe Tie Fighter and X-Wing Fighter.

16-Foot-Tall Wireframe AT-AT

We did our drive-by at night, but it was still neat -- a fairly impressive structure.

[Suz, 02/06/2016]

The wireframe AT-AT walker was built in 2015 by artist John Sharpe, and stands in his yard. It's big but wispy, since it's made entirely of thin steel wire. Sharpe said his intent was to make the sculpture as a kind of outline, and hopes that visitors complete the AT-AT in their minds.
