As I stood beneath this lookout tower, I could see fires smoldering in the distance, our landscape swiftly shifting...
I am witness to the change. I am witness to earth's healing. I am thankful for the firefighters who traveled from around the country - around the world - to protect our valley.
I wonder if our wolf pack circles here and howls skyward as the forest fire rages? I am humbled by the history in these wood planks. I am struck by the blueness of these skies.
Built in 1937, staffed regularly until 1997, still on emergency status. The tiny look out tower that I made is hollow form, hand fabricated with sterling silver. It stands 2.25" in height. All four sides were carved to resemble the old wood grains of the real tower. The rickety stairs were soldered into place, one step at a time.
This piece is a sculpture, not jewelry. One of a kind. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this piece will be donated to forest health in Washington state.
