California Gold

California Gold


A Stainless Steel Base has a bronze disc attached yet buried beneath an additional curved segment of Stainless Steel.  The sharply curved stainless element, it it simply a crude “C”, or is it the representative curve of the eastern boundary of the State of California.

The brass element could represent symbolically the base for foundational growth of the state when “gold-rush” fever brought so many people to the west coast of the USA.  The gold rush was the starting point for so much development, which included a railroad eventually built to connect east and west.
