Thrive! abstract sculpture by GChris supports our building a thriving future for all forever.    

Sculptures utilize natural materials - copper/wood. Are to be interacted with and gently touched. Sizes range from a foot to dozen feet. Some make sounds; some remain silent. Some move physically; some conceptually. All generate shadows, a second image.
