We had the pleasure this spring of working with a local artist, Jillian Banks-Kong (http://www.jillianbanks-kong.com), on the creation of a bronze sculpture of a bear for a residential garden and children's outdoor play space. The piece was created as part of a dry creek water play area that includes a water-pump, climbing rocks, and bridge. In a month or two willow playhouses will arrive to finish off the piece.
After much anticipation, the bear was finished and ready to be installed this week. He now rests happily in his new home among the ferns at the edge of his very own creek waiting for his next fish to arrive.
