the aerial view

I've always been inspired by the capacity for the view from a plane to alter my perspective. Today's low sun revealed secrets that stunned me: spiderwebs blanketed the grass at the runway, shallow spots in the topography of the Puget Sound lit up, and the trees etched high contrast ground shadows.

This small sculpture means to suggest an aerial view writ small, the wonder of pattern and tilt, the intuitive form that reveals an order.
