TV interview Straw Sculpture

The arts and crafts trail in Gatlinburg winds along Glades Road. It’s a place where you’ll find weavers and carvers and painters and more. A new life-size creation that’s revved up some interest there. His old truck may have inspired the shape of his latest project. But Paul Murray isn’t exactly sure where the idea came from.
“I just got it in my head a couple weeks ago that I wanted to build a truck out of straw,”
– Paul Murray
And build a truck out of straw he did. He’s a traditional artist who had never worked with straw. He says he made the truck without glue and without a supporting frame.
