Jamie Horacek never has owned a construction crane, nor has he ever operated one. Yet he’s fascinated with how they move, how they work and every tiny detail of the massive machines. Two of his model cranes, reaching as high as 12 feet, are made of thousands of tiny hand-crafted pieces and will be on display this month at the Steamboat Springs Center for Visual Arts.
