VESSELS



A series of 18 cast-iron sculptures dot the community garden that occupies Seattle Public Utilities property at Beacon Reservoir. Building on the inspiration of the reservoir as a container, they evoke puffball mushrooms holding spores, berries holding seeds, seedpods and ceramic water jugs. Likewise, they hold stories from the community. I interviewed volunteers and neighbors over several summer months capturing food stories and traditions on audio, and embedding them into the permanent works.
