River Geodesy was commissioned by a client who adores fishing. After selecting a favorite geode from my collection, the client spoke of western rivers fished and loved. Sketching ensued. The approved sketch became this sculpture which incorporates the topographical lines of the Yampa and Green Rivers…and an abundance of fossil “fish.”
