In the Earth series, I hope to evoke the awe I have for the planet, along with concern for all of the life dependent upon it. As Maya Angelou said, “We need joy as we need air. We need love as we need water. We need each other as we need the earth we share.” These pieces are a mix of dyed concrete and sculpted metal. The posts are crafted of twisted steel rods and pigmented with patinas. The pedestals are either concrete, welded metal colored with patinas or aluminum.
