Description of Work:
The sculpture is a cementitious board and aluminum core sandwiched within three steel frames and clad in screen printed, painted and kiln fired glass tiles with photographic imagery and text.
"Roots of our Future" honours the history and current activities of the Richmond Fire Department while also representing the community of Steveston. It is an undulating wave-like form that uses images to reflect Richmond Fire-Rescue and the region’s history and changing character.
On each side of the artwork is an enlarged section of a Pacific Crab Apple tree.
