"Woven Past : roots entwined"
Inspired by the natural history of the area where the Salish once gathered plant material to produce woven goods for trading. My concept's purpose serves to honor the fading craft.

The shelter platform pavers are Stewart's interpretation of traditional basket weaving patterns.
The Wind Sculpture disks each depict a hand and an eye - symbolic of the hand-eye coordination of the skilled weaver.
The lower panels of the shelter are patinaed bronze showing two different basket patterns.
February 16, The shelter arrives at
228th Ave & Issaquah - Pine Lake Road
The graphic on the disk of the Wind Sculpture is the weaver's hand representing the handicraft of the artisan.
The image in the hand is depicting a coiled basket base.
The background pattern is a plaited checkerboard weave.
