'Interconnected' depicts natural, plant-like pods emerging from a single stem, symbolizing how all entities are intertwined with, dependent upon, and affected by, each other.
Interconnectedness includes people and our relation to the natural world (and to each other) for those who choose to think deeper about this concept. Yet, ’Interconnected’ can be appreciated purely for its visual interest.
The silhouette of the three copper-highlighted pods emerging from a slender granite base beckons viewers closer to reveal delightful construction details.
This sculpture may also ‘read’ in multiple ways — for example, one might see a flying insect in this sculpture. Interpreting my work in multiple ways reveals the interconnectedness of forms and one’s own perspective.
‘Interconnected’ measures 84” tall x 48” wide x 5” deep (17” deep when accounting for the sculpture base/anchoring). Steel, copper brazing, and granite.
The sculpture is sealed with multiple coats of a clear UV-resistant lacquer to prevent rusting and preserve the reflective forged facets of the raw metal.
The sculpture and its granite base and cradle are three separate pieces, designed for ease of transport and installation by anchors either into the ground or a cement pad. The sculpture weighs 90 lbs; granite block is 105 lbs; base cradle is 12 lbs.
Georgetown Sculpture Tour 2022-2023
While I welcome private commissions, public art enhances quality of life in a community and reaches a larger audience.
‘Interconnected’ has been accepted in the Georgetown Sculpture Tour 2022-2023 which features public art installed throughout the Cultural District in Georgetown, TX.
For about a year, beginning October 2022, ‘Interconnected’ can be viewed at 606 S. Church Street, about a block from the courthouse on the Square.
I welcome this opportunity to share my outdoor sculpture with the Georgetown, TX, community and its visitors!
