a story of slavery

I am floored at how often I get to work on projects in which I believe wholeheartedly. The Whitney Plantation project came from a local Denver woman who saw some of my Vela designs. She is from Louisiana. Her father bought the plantation years ago with the dream of making it an homage to slave children. The site has commissioned, life-size bronze statues standing hauntingly across the grounds. The Field of Angels lists the names of all known children who died, frequently using only first name. My client sent me pictures for inspiration and I had chills as I looked through them. I love that I can be a part of such an important place.


The last design is what they liked best.
