Public Sculptures by Ed Carpenter seen at Leffingwell Road, Santa Fe Springs - Springstar


“Springstar” is the main attraction of the large office and warehouse complex at the corner of Leffingwell and Imperial Highway in Santa Fe Springs, California. The sculpture, created by Ed Carpenter, is scaled to be prominent in relation to surrounding structures and is designed to be bold enough in form to be a significant entry marker for the Golden Springs Development Company. It preserves good vehicle sight lines. It also seeks to embody feelings of up-welling, ascending from the earth, and rising spirits since its forms have various potential references, simultaneously suggesting botanical, technical, and fountain imagery.
