Artist Statement

This sculpture speaks to the preciousness and life-giving qualities of water. The work-intensive treatment of the bowl – polish covering the entire upper area, crosshatching/basket weave for the remainder of the bowl – all surround the small shallow indentation, that holds only a bit of water compared to the volume of the sculpture. In short: lots of stone, little water.

About the Work

Purchased from 2008 Bellevue Sculpture Exhibition and left in place in the Downtown Park. Its water theme fits with the long-term Art Walk theme of water.
