Katster Lock

200 Church Street
2007, Painted Steel
Burlington Telecom was looking for a way to improve their front entrance and provide a bike rack for employees and building tenants.  Kat Clear’s bike rack sculpture is modeled after a padlock.  Her first bike rack sculpture, also a clever rendition of a bike lock, can be seen (used) on North Winooski Ave, in front of Radio Bean.


Kryptonite Lock

North Winooski Avenue
2006, Coated Steel
Until 2006, the conscientious bikers heading for the diverse array of businesses on the corner of North Winooski Avenue and Pearl Street tied their bikes to the trees and garbage cans lining the street.  When a request for a bike rack was sent to the Department of Public Works, their Environmental Planner for pedestrians and bicycles saw the potential to further promote Burlington’s reputation as a bicycle friendly city and incorporate the street’s creative character by turning the rack into a public art project. 


Queen City Crown

Burlington Town Center, Church St. Marketplace
2007, steel, hand blown glass, antique maple taps and brass found objects
A sculpture in honor of the Queen City Burlington. It hangs in the Burlington Town Center and is inspired by the history and beauty of our Vermont surroundings, including Lake Champlain, architecture, the sugaring industry, the Green Mountains, agriculture and our belief in community.
