“I seek to express the strength and grace of the human spirit using timeless design, contemporary materials and innovative techniques. We worked with an engineering firm and native advisors for months to be certain the work was structurally sound and culturally appropriate.
In the summer of 2015 we began production of the full-scale sculpture starting with the support structure and the star quilt. It’s exciting and challenging for the team to work on this scale.”
