Footnotes to the Handrails

The hand rails are made from actual tree branches and pine cones which have been cast in bronze.  The birds were sculpted in wax and then cast.

Sadly, I lost my dear friend Stella during this project.  She struggled with a blood disorder for 18 days and died on Monday evening, Dec. 2, 2002.  I lost my confident, my guardian, my alarm clock, my walking companion, my muse.  Stella's ashes rest inside the cast impressions of my hands so that her spirit may continue to survey the steps to my life.

Rest in peace dear Stella.
