Artist Statement: 
My sculpture invites participation: with people, and with the sun, shadows and alignments at different seasons of the year. The position of the sun, moon and stars creates a structure for me, like a painter might use a rectangle as a frame of reference.

Kate Pond's sculptures are inspired by curves in nature: fiddlehead ferns and tendrils of vines or grasses moving in the wind. Corten steel is her material of choice. It rusts to a deep dark patina with subtle changes in the soft velvety surface. Her public work includes Wellspring at the Heller School at Brandeis University near Boston, MA; Sunfix at the Highgate Springs, VT, United States Port of Entry; Himeguri at the Mitsubishi Sports Garden in Sendai, Japan; Solekko at the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology in Oslo, Norway; and Telling Stones at Mapua School, Nelson, New Zealand. She welcomes visitors to the sculpture studio in South Burlington that she shares with fellow sculptor Kat Clear.
