Sometimes the weight of the world, the constant bombardment of suffering is too much for one soul to endure. This piece embodies that vision, with the harried subject fallen to her knees beneath her battered umbrella. Several years ago some dear friends donated a box of antique porcelain tiles to me that they reclaimed from their 110+ year old farm house. They were hoping I could use them for one of my projects. In the fall of 2017 I was inspired to create this piece. It can be seen on display at Coquette's Bistro and Bakery in Colorado Springs.
24" wide by 24" deep by 72" tall. The pedestal and umbrella are steel with powder coating on the pedestal and hand-brushed patinas on the umbrella, and the body incorporates those donated porcelain tiles on a steel and cement armature (welded to the pedestal).
Price includes relocation and installation to your site if delivery is within 60 miles of downtown Colorado Springs (80904 zip code). Delivery beyond 60 miles requires an additional cost, to be determined.
This piece requires a base to be mounted to for security, ideally concrete, if it is to be displayed in a public setting. Its pedestal has brackets at each corner for 3/8" bolts. In a home garden or private area, it only needs a flat area, though securing it with bolts is recommended.
