Embrace - 1991

8' h x 5'w. Cast Bronze. Sky Harbor Airport. Phoenix, AZ

This sculpture is a cast bronze, scaled up version of a Devils Claw seed pod. The idea for making the sculpture is inspired by actual seed pods that are found in desert washes in Arizona. The Devil's Claw seed pod also goes under the names of unicorn plant, cat's claw, proboscis flower, and staghorn plant.

This sculpture was created for a solo exhibition in 1991 and was the first casting in a limited edition of three. The first piece was sold to the City of Phoenix's Sky Harbor Terminal 4 Public Art collection shortly after the exhibition. The other two castings are still available for commission.
