Launching 1

“Launching I” is the first piece in a series called “Launchings and Moorings” which I began last year. As I watched the last of our children prepare the way for her own family and saw younger colleagues sending the last of their children off to school and college, I began to think about all our hopes and fears as we set our children free and the safe and solid places we try to maintain for their periodic returns. All the launching pieces hang while the moorings are fixed within hammered steel frames similar to the one in which this launching floats.
