The Sea Beside Us

Weathering steel retaining wall panels

King County Library, Shoreline, WA - 2007

8 large scale weathering steel panels are a tribute to Rachel Carson, the influential ecologist and writer. The title refers to her book , THE SEA AROUND US, which resonates for this location, the community of Shoreline, WA.   The imagery combines native plant and animal sea life with troublesome objects of human origin (saw blades, bottles, boats, wheels).
