Installed at the Reed Market Rd and 15th Street Roundabout in April 27, 2018) Inspired by
Three Sisters mountain peaks on the western horizon
The crescent moon
Ski jumps off in the ski areas to the west
Birds eye view of the bend in the Deschutes River that gave the town its name
Volcanic peaks of prehistoric times
Tips of the evergreens silhouetted against the clear skies of Eastern Oregon
Three Rising is fabricated from heavy gauge stainless steel and brushed stainless steel tubing. They have my own custom surface finishes, both inside and out. LED lights, powered by solar panels securely mounted in the roundabout, make the sculptures glow after dark while lightening our environmental footprint. The color of the lights can be changed at will but include purples and blues. The lit-up sculptures are subtle, radiant beacons for both residents and visitors alike. The glowing sculptures aids traffic safety by making drivers more aware of the roundabout at night. As people drive around the sculptures, the changing views create, I hope, a landmark, a sense of place and spark the imagination.
