Public Art Pillars

Originally intended for a short-term public art show at Portland State University these pillars eventually found their way into a residential herbaceous boarder. The pillars were conceived to draw attention to the beauty of native planting and species in a family garden. The pillars are human scale and serve to remind the viewer that we are part of nature. Made from cedar harvested in Oregon and planted with native plants they brought height and improved habitat to a Portland garden. As of September of 2020, there have been 3 species of birds nesting, insects, amphibians, mammals and cephalopods living and some over wintering in them. Materials: cedar fence boards, steal brads, soil, and native plants.
