In recognition of William Cummings...a visionary that devoted his life to the enrichment of the community and development of Folsom.
A collaboration between myself and fellow stone artist, Gene Chapman.
Commissioned by William's beloved wife Claudia Cummings & family.
Donated to the City of Folsom, featured at Cummings Family Park.
A two sided 8'X6' stone features Williams' life story on the back as well as 5 metal rings that speak of his philosophy regarding the success and viability of a city....
"if you're not growing, you're dying"
Nestled in river rock, these rings represent wheels of progress, flow of ideas,
symbolize unity, and depict the waterways of this region.
A patina treatment kick-started the ever evolving metal components, while the stability of the stone provides an anchor of continuity...the significance of each of these mediums representational by design.
I am truly honored to play a part in William's remembrance.
