Earth, Wind, & Fire - - Triptych

Sunrise - November 6, 2011
Gardens at Waters East

Throughout the Gardens at Waters East, there are a number of created pieces of art.  They are often positioned to take advantage of surrounding materials, textures, focal points, or distant views.  You are encouraged to check out these and other Principles of Design written about in the archive postings of November 12, 2010; November 15-24, 2010;  and the final Golden Principle of Design posted on May 2, 2011.

The sculpture shown here is titled “Triptych”.  The three individual sections are moveable and are often arranged and rearranged then placed in different rooms of the garden.  Each time the sculpture is sited, even in slightly different positions, it takes on a different form and a different “feel” as it is placed here or there about the gardens.

The “Triptych” titled:  Earth, Wind & Fire,  weighs about forty pounds and is made of solid steel panels painted in three bold colors symbolizing Earth (black), Wind (cloud white), and Fire (red).  These are truly appropriate elements for a garden accented with the large body of water – Lake Michigan.

  1. I like having art in my gardens too. I have two wind sculptures one is a spinner the other a harp. The wind plays the harp and spins the spinner....Seeing the lake in the background reminded me of how huge it has been a few years since I have traveled to Lake Michigan.
    gorgeous water and sculpture!
    Happy December,

  3. Interesting garden sculpture--I like the symbolism. It would be fun to be able to move it around for different themes and displays.

  4. Use only one credit card for online purchases, and then monitor that credit card statement very closely every month.

  5. There are many ways to avail the services of a job recruitment agency. With the development of internet technologies, it is possible to submit CVs through online portals. The agencies will evaluate the CVs and search for appropriate employment opportunities that match relevant experience and qualification. payroll solutions
