Created by Ken Girardini and Julie Girardini
This sculptural, boat-shaped vessel is created from cold-rolled steel, steel rod, wire, and gold leaf. The artists have created a push/pull in the energy of this piece. Each of us sometimes feels that our world is falling into chaos. The artists attempted to capture this feeling in this piece, with one end of the boat in perfect harmony and the other gradually falling away. The artists do this to remind us that life is a blend of strength and uncertainty. Gold leaf illuminates the interior to make it seem as if it were lit from within. The gold leaf continues along the top of a few of the rods so you see an illumination from tip to tip.
