The Water Tower Pavilion (2017) In Blythewood SC

Blythewood-2-72-Resize-Crop

This piece was commissioned with the help of One Percent for Public art fund from One Columbia and Richland Libraries in Blythewood SC.  The piece references an old steam train water tower that was located not far from the installation site. I focused on esthetics of how the wood met the metal as I crafted many pieces of fastening hardware from scratch. The piece has a significant historical connection to the town as each of the vertical uprights has a name of one of the town founders engraved in it.  Many thanks to the Blythewood Historical Society for curating those family names.
