  The Meredith Sculpture Walk is a self-guided or docent-guided sculpture path along Main Street, throughout the Mill Falls Marketplace, and beside Lake Winnipesaukee, in Meredith, NH.
  "Spirit's Daughter" (above, left) is a public installation originally commissioned for the Courtyard on Main Street (article on page 9) in Meredith.  This stainless steel and copper sculpture was inspired by lakeside living.  Its title pays tribute to Lake Winnipesaukee--a lake whose name is a Native American word translated as "Smile of the Great Spirit."  Its design elements draw from the beauty and bounty of the lakes.  Read more here (article on page 14).  In 2015, it was relocated to site #31 of the 2nd annual Meredith Sculpture Walk, a year round exhibit.
  "Open Water II" (2nd from left), at site #9 for the 1st annual MSW, is the 2nd in a stainless steel series.  It contrasts the stationary sturdiness of steel with a design suggesting gentle motion and flow. From June to November 2015 it was part of the Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden's annual exhibit.
  "Black Sailboat" (third from left) at site #28, is a collaboration with Winnipesaukee Forge artist-blacksmith, David Little.  Little
modeled the vessel from a book of photographs taken by his great grandfather in the 1880s.
