Title: “Whitewater Rapids"
Medium: Ceramic / Cast Glass / Light
Style: Contemporary / Abstract
Subject / Inspiration: Water is the most powerful substance on the planet even when it’s not moving. Fast-moving water always has the potential for injury or death by drowning or hitting objects. Fatalities do occur; some 50 people die in whitewater accidents in the United States each year. Although this is an activity I would not participate in, I can’t help but admire the human spirit of all the paddlers who risk everything for the thrill of it all.
