Lubber - Public Sculptures

Creator not accepting inquiries

Lubber, a sphere of laminated cedar veneer punctuated by hand-wrought iron rings, sits as a sentinel to the concourse. Lubber's title refers to a person that is out of sync with his environment, commonly known in the nautical expression, "land-lubber," a person not acclimated to seafaring.
