Sequim: Sculpture finds home in public park

SEQUIM — Sculptor Dave Reynolds has found a permanent home for his unique work of art “Sunlight and Shadow.”

The 1,100-pound, aluminum sculpture has been installed on a concrete pad and reflecting pool in the middle of a lawn adjacent to the Water Reuse Demonstration Site Education and Interpretive Center north of Carrie Blake Park.

Reynolds, 80, made his gift to the city official during a brief ceremony Monday.

Mayor Bill Thomas described the sculpture as “an inspiration to other local artists” as he accepted the gift on behalf of the city.

“The inspiration for ‘Sunlight and Shadow’ came from a pattern on our cabin floor,” Reynolds said. “That pattern was converted to a three-dimensional piece.”

Reynolds described the sculpture as a “metaphor for life that changes from day-to-day, hour-to-hour; sometimes, moment-to-moment.”

“Happy times, sad times, all those in-between times,” he said. “Watch it . . . It changes moment-to-moment.”

Reynolds thanked fabricator Charlie Roberts of Sequim for his work on the sculpture.

“Charlie is a man of many talents, an artist with a welding torch” Reynolds said. “He fabricated the 10-to-1 enlargement of ‘Sunlight and Shadow’ from my original 11-inch bronze casting. He brought it to life.”
