Featured Project: Hopeful Monument
The brand worked with Stuart to craft a one-of-a-kind sculpture that depicts the very thing it is honoring. Carved in Cordova Cream Texas Limestone, the monument draws inspiration from rock formations, waterflow, waterfalls, flora and fauna unique to many of the endangered bodies of water in the Southwest. A first for Simpson, the notion of his work not ever being seen in service of sparking change is something he is proud to partake in.
“Though I’ve been working with stone almost my entire life, Finish’s ‘HOPEFUL MONUMENT’ is the first-ever piece of art I’ve created that is never meant to be seen, and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved,” says Stuart Simpson, HOPEFUL MONUMENT Sculptor. “As a Texas native, I’m familiar with our state’s drought situation and the water crisis as a whole, so I was eager to contribute because of the powerful message, and to help spread awareness on this important issue.”
Location: Pierce Lake
The sculpture was placed in the lake in the Spring of 2023
