The Rock Candy River at Pacific Edge Climbing Gym in Santa Cruz CA is a temporary installation inspired by the flow of water and how it shapes the land. The hard angled ceramic shapes juxtapose the curvy flow of the form to create a dynamic visual engagement. And yes, it’s also inspired by my time spent climbing the walls at Pacific Edge too! This installation is about 9′ x 5′ x 1′ and is made up of 73 individual pieces. View the installation process here.
