Originally part of the 2019 West Seattle Food Bank auction, the Offering series is inspired by all those who give their time and resources to make the world a better place. The sold sculptures raised money for the food bank and also invited me to explore the meaning of generosity and kindness more deeply. As the Buddha said: "if you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path." These sculptures are a mix of dyed concrete modeled on a steel armature, then hand polished. The posts are crafted of twisted steel rods and pigmented with patinas. The bases are either concrete or welded metal colored with patinas.
