Rainwall
2005
8.5' x 14' x 4'
Copper, Stainless Steel, Fiberglass, Ceramic, Water

Rainwall, % for Art Public Sculpture, Art in State Buildings, University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, awarded through national competition. Created as a focus for beautiful, new Redeker Student Dining Center. Water flows continuously down all surfaces of 8’ x 14’ x 14’ stainless steel sculpture in ceramic tile pool. Stainless steel surfaces vibrantly “drawn” in with varied grinding equipment to create shimmering, “watery” surfaces that create dynamic movement across “Rainwall’s” curves. Copper-colored areas’ warmth provides counterpoint to silvery stainless steel.
