Description:

This piece represents a major event that has happened in recent times that has greatly affected American culture.

North Tower 9/11 was carved after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. 

“I was thinking, what is America, what could I carve in stone that would represent this event that forever changed America? I wanted the piece to transcend the obvious symbols of the Twin Towers or the American flag. To me, America is comfort food and fun, so M&Ms became the perfect representation for America in this sculpture.”
