Circle of Friends

This sculpture is a tribute to my family and all the books we enjoyed with our children as they were growing up. The design consists of a cylinder with a simple band around the outside of it that contains the engraved titles of several books that appeal to young readers. Incorporating the titles on the band around the piece echoes how books encompass our lives and become a valuable part of who we are. They can have an enormous impact on our lives as they help us to form our beliefs, morals and our dreams.
Circle of Friends has a young girl settled comfortable in the cylinder with her favorite book. The cylinder is balanced on a pyramid base. There is a bas-relief of the Secret Garden gate on one side of the base depiction of The Island of the Blue Dolphin on the other.
