ABOUT THIS WATERSHED
Artist Robert Goetz’ hand-blown, water-drop-shaped glass was the inspiration for this cairn, Fluid. The glass contains a wild flower found at the site and rests on a large inverted found-glass goblet and bowl. The fissure in the limestone behind the Cairn shows how water flowing, freezing, and thawing can split the rocks, changing the landscape. The resulting rocky rubble creates a rough soil where wind–blown seeds can take root and grow. Like the woody shrub growing next to this Cairn, the plant’s roots further break down the limestone bluffs.
