A tiny drawing from my sketchbook, ink on paper, from 1992 was the inspiration for this sculpture, produced almost a decade later. In the meantime, after beginning the hook and pedestal series, the elements in the drawing were simplified to the wheels, the pedestal, and a curved handle mounted on top. This handle doubles as the object being displayed on the pedestal - justifying its artistic usefulness - and for the collector to both pull the pedestal along on his/her way home, and also to support the pedestal in a horizontal position, making a bench for the new owner to rest and enjoy the view on his/her way to his/her final destination.
