Her work is so abstract and colorful, i felt like it was there to be abstract and appealing to the most inner child inside every child. It felt as if she was competing with the male sculptors at her time, but still keeping her feminine nurturing characteristics. These toys are definitely appealing to the simple mind, because it seems like many children toys and blocks are shaped around the formula or colors and shapes. Alma Siedhoff-Buscher used these structures and colors to depict her own design in a male dominated wooden sculpture world. I appreciate how these structures generate thought of real life things such as a highway (top) or a boat (bottom).
