We stopped on our way to go camping on Antelope Island, the Great Salt Lake coast rocky and cool. The earth and smooth stones were visible through the shallow red water. We followed the spiral around to the center in silence, listening to the wind and the water, thinking about time. We went to the bird sanctuary too that day, meeting cranes and swans, finches and kookaburra, the whole place a prism of feather and color, part of the story too, the painted birds yet another
earth marvel, another temporary work of art.
Inspired by Robert Smithson's earthwork sculpture constructed in April 1970. All earrings come with sterling silver posts and findings.
