New England Flower Show, 2004
5 feet, conglomerate stone, brass, copper, stone base, water

Delicate and flowering, this sculpture was created from just a few pieces of copper cable, unraveled and then interwoven with the copper tubing that creates the skeleton of the form. The genesis of the sculpture was a result of my intrigue with the materials themselves: the brass cylinders, the turned conglomerate stone, and the glimmering surface of the base stone. The copper form, reminiscent of the Arisaema flower, simply emerged from the process of uniting these materials into a sculpture where water could flow over the sphere.

Installed three years after being shown at the New England Flower show, it was a delight for Bob and me to uncrate this quiet beauty and create her water home, together.
