Storm Patterns
Lake Tye, Monroe, WA

The sculpture, placed at a storm water retention pond in Monroe, Washington, alludes to the hidden recharge rainwater system of Lake Tye, connecting viewers to the hidden ecology of their community. Research into Monroe’s history revealed a photograph of “the leading ladies of Monroe” who were from the Snohomish tribe like many of the wives of the first pioneers. The sculpture represents profiles of the women and a cumulonimbus cloud formed from converging cumulus clouds.
