Commissioned by Redstone for the development of a residential building at 247 Pearl Street, "Wish"is a wall-based public sculpture that takes the form of a dandelion seed. A
popular symbol of myth and legend, the dandelion symbolizes wishes that come true. Frequently
known as the ‘wishing clock’, the image has a timeless quality that is easily recognizable the world
over. Commonly it is found growing as a weed yet it has multiple uses--including both medicinal
and culinary purposes. This herbal plant has deep roots, is strong, resilient and embodies the spirit
of Vermont.
