I have a friend in Squamish, Moses. He is a great artist, especially sculpting rock and teaching me along the way. We are always working on a number of fantastic projects together and this latest one is nothing short of amazing. Thanks Moe!
This bench is near the new boardwalk in Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond, B.C. It was really cool when I installed it because a lady who lived in the exact spot beside the slough a number of years ago came by and watched the installation. We talked about her family living there until recently.
The bench format was easy for me to work with because I love working the material so much. The design changed a few times while I was designing it though, I ended up choosing ravens because I have always had a close connection with them and people compare me to them the most. Spa’al, is how we say Raven on Musqueam territory.
