I was commissioned to produce something for the lobby of this clinic, which would be both furniture and sculpture as well as creating a sense of nature and growth. Of course, it would also need to be achieved at a low cost. What I have used is two intersecting vertical planes - the sculptural representation of plants, which are themselves intersected by a horizontal plane which forms the table surface.
In 1981, the Canada Games were held in Thunder Bay. The city built a new Sportsplex and held a competition for a piece of sculpture to be placed at the entrance. I won this competition. Vertere is from a Latin word, meaning to twist or turn. The material is White Pine 8 x 8s, lag-bolted together at the halved-joint intersections. It’s 10 feet tall and 40 feet long.
