Some of you have asked me about the sculpture pedestals - what they will look like. They're all circular, from 3 to 6 feet in diameter. A few are attached to the benches, like the one pictured here, and the rest are free standing. There are seven of them, at last count.
There will be lighting set in the top portion, with some kind of sculpture on the pedestal itself. Those of you who are members of Ironwood Studio will know the tiles slated for these as long, skinny pieces, with a bump in the middle.
All the sculpture tiles will be glazed in manila banana, with accent tiles in celadon and brown celadon. You may think that sounds like a "quiet" color palette, but that's exactly what was requested by the City Arts commission. They didn't want to take anything away from the sculpture positioned on the pedestal. Good planning on their part, doncha think?
