"Buried Anchor, was installed onto a 19’ high wall that was originally built with the intention to be part of an elevator but for whatever reason, likely lack of funding, the project was scrapped and the wall stood empty in the middle of a courtyard populated with high tourist traffic, a perfect substrate for a mosaic. The property management at Anchorage Square had a vision that would incorporate their “anchor”, as well as the iconic golden gate bridge, along with a sail boat, etc. The project was created in my studio, in sections, and then transferred to the site to be mortared and grouted. It celebrates the glorious sparkles of the San Francisco bay!" Said the artist Delaine Hackney.
