Art On The Corner: ‘Knotted Badge In Blue’

“Knotted Badge in Blue” by Suzi Rhae Ross of Cass Lake, Minn.

SCULPTURE: “Knotted Badge in Blue” is in front of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, on the south side of the 300 block of Main Street.

ARTIST: Suzi Rhae Ross of Cass Lake, Minn.

DESCRIPTION: The main piece of the sculpture is a sheet of weathered, welded steel in the shape of an inverted triangle. The metal sheet stands 28 inches tall with the tip of the triangle welded to the base. A rectangular shape is cut out of the metal piece in the top half. Within this rectangle is a large blue glass rock mounted around five intertwined and welded rings of varying sizes.

INSPIRATION: “I have some background in jewelry,” Ross said.

“My inspiration is outdoor jewelry. It’s art made for women who have beautiful gardens. That’s my target market. The pieces are more jewelry-like, simple, clean and outdoors for 20 to 100 years.” Ross said. “That one was the first in a series with glass.”

PAST ENTRIES: Ross is a former Grand Junction resident (1992-2000). Her paternal grandmother still lives the area. Ross’ sculpture in the 2008 Art on the Corner exhibit, “Heart of Stone,” sold and “Knotted Badge in Blue” also has been sold.
