The Blue Bridge Series was inspired by the replacement of the iconic metal blue bridge in Victoria, BC. The series is based on the ‘atmosphere’ of sadness and outrage at the loss of the landmark and recalls memories of similar bridges in the industrial northeast part of England. Created pieces reflect the architectural engineering and the cathedral-like qualities as well as the sounds of vehicles crossing the bridge.
