This sculpture is about light, yellow and circles !
In 2010,the Press Democrat it was featured: Gardens with Sculpture.

This sculpture was featured again in Sonoma Magazine, May 24, 2014 :Yard Art.

I had been given 6 stainless steel & glass dryer doors, by an art loving couple who own a laundry. As it sometimes is with very special & extraordinary “found objects”, I didn’t want to prematurely “spend” this treasure. Over time, I tried many different matches from my boneyard.

I found light captured by color on glass was dramatic... hence my first painted piece !

I planned a stack of 3 layers: painted glass doors, bike wheels, & hoops, all on edge, joined and circling the center pole. To lighten the weight for transportation, stabilize & simplify the look, I eliminated the bike wheels.

I welded the four doors to the base, the central pole and each other. The hoop unit slides on the pole, to sit on top of the doors & frames the painted bulb.

I am pleased with the way these parts dynamically interact, echoing themes and unifying the composition.
