Track: Mouth of the Nooksack

Forged from a 2ft chuck of railroad rail, this sculpture is part of a series that explores Bellingham’s heritage through resource extraction and the landscape.  The slender taper drawn from the rail follows the Nooksack River starting at the mouth and extending approximately 10 miles up stream.  For me, this sculpture successfully bridges a material, a place and a time.
