Red Balance

Calm settling over Plum Island after one of the biggest storms of the summer.

Made with driftwood from Plum Island and erosion fencing from Cape Cod that's been mangled by waves, this sculpture illustrates balance in the natural world. Red represents the fire of the sun; driftwood, the power of oceans; metal, the strength of resources; goldstone, all the precious gifts.

Finding such boldly colored wood is rare, but on this particular trip I gathered a bunch of it. Perhaps some poor hippies' love shack was toppled in a particularly fierce storm....
