All of R. A. Miller's metal works have sharp edges and sides. Care must be taken when handling these metal works! It is typical for them to have holes, rust, peeling paint, fading and discolored paint, and other imperfections because they were procured from salvaged materials and repurposed for his art works. Nail holes are typical because he tacked them to the side of his house when presented for sale.
R.E.M. filmed their video Left of Reckoning (1984) at R. A. Miller's studio and Whirligig Farm in Rabbittown, Georgia - directed by James Herbert, University of Georgia, Athens.
