One would think that a miniature work could be finished quickly in contrast to my actual size manhole cover works. Truthfully, I enjoy challenges and problem solving. As I created the sculpture, I had to make sure that the clear cube cover would fit over it.
So I had to insert the side pieces instead of having them protrude.

The Three Water Carriers were the most interesting image to face the Mirror side of Cube Cover. On the mirror back outside of the cube, I posted the theme message of the piece:
“Two thirds of the world is composed of water, but less than one percent is suitable for drinking.”
I discovered reference material in The Dow Chemical Brochure on protecting global waters.

I thought the Sculpture was finished, until Judy Hablewitz, costume designer for the Solivita Starlighters, said that to be effective, the sculpture really needed to rotate.
Harvey Factor, The Starlighter’s Technical Director suggested contacting Dave Butler from the Technical Crew. Boy was I fortunate. Dave, who had built and designed model ships and hundreds of miniature doll houses, had just what I needed. He provided me with several tiny turn tables and wooden support disks.
Winning the award was possible due to the support and advice of my husband, friends and colleagues here in The Solivita Community.
