Pacifica, a Celebration of the Seashore!

This sculpture was created to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of Cascade Head Preserve on the Oregon Coast. It is made of natural items found along the seashore such as shells, driftwood, rocks, salmon teeth, fins and vertebrae that are strung onto wire and secured to a metal skirt made from upcycled baking sheets. The bodice is made from moss, lichens and bark sewn to burlap with old fishing line.

Pacifica was commissioned by the Nature Conservancy of Oregon in 2016.
