Focused on Mississippi: Lee Washington’s Unusual Art

Pine Belt News

ROLLING FORK, Miss. (WJTV) – Lee Washington’s art is not what’s you’d expect. And his career as an artist isn’t, either.

He sees the things that are- and imagines what they could be. And then takes a cutting torch and welder, makes them that way.

His artistic medium is as about as Delta as a cotton field- worn out cotton picker spindles. Lee Washington saw a bunch of them years ago when he first started teaching welding- and in his mind- he also saw something else- little people.
