This abstract piece consists of a cylinder form supported several feet in the air by 12" piping.  The 12" pipe shoots vertically out of the ground.  About 1' above ground level, the pipe bends to about 30 degrees.  Several feet up, the piping becomes vertical again, then it abruptly angles to become horizontal.  At the end of this horizontal section is attached a large cylinder form which lies horizontally on its axis.  The cylinder form is actually a 3/4 cylinder, appearing to have had a 1/4 section sliced out as though it were cheese.  The entire piece has been painted a metallic gray.


The sculpture is located on an island in Brush Creek east of the Brush Creek Community Center.
