Lee's Cotton Picker Art
 Lee A. Washington, Artist
Rolling Fork, Mississippi 






Cotton picker spindles are used in my Agriculture Power and Machinery shop to make chipping hammers to clean spatter and slag off metal after the welding process.  While on spring break in 2001, I was given some used spindles.  After making the chipping hammers, I wondered what I could do with the extra spindles.  After arranging them in several positions, I was able to see a stick-man.  At that point, I decided to try making a man.  One spindle made the body and then other spindles were used for the arms and legs.  I welded all parts together.  I was not satisfied with the results, so I made another and another.  Now I can make just about whatever I put my mind to!
