Porcelain,aluminum panel with CNC routed river and watershed patterns, steel wire, foam, 7 ft. wide by 4 ft. high by 1.5 ft. in depth, 2012.
The rivers systems and watersheds of Colorado are mapped out with shallow lines carved into the surface of an aluminum panel. The Continental Divide is symbolized by the porcelain flowers with water blue glazes that emerge from the cut in the panel. The piece is a meditation on the preciousness of water resources in Colorado, as well as on the many demands placed on the river systems by various population centers and by agriculture. The value of water in Colorado could one day rival the value historicallybestowed on porcelain as demand increases.
