“Balance 1” is the title of the sculpture by Jeff Owen currently on display as part of the Cloverdale Sculptfure Trail. It is two trainagular shapes, juxtaposed with two steel balls. According to Jeff, “Balance I” plays on the concept of overcoming and reaching as high as one can, and maintain balance and harmony throughout our lives. The balls, placed at the base of the upper structure, refer to the issues in our lives that can make us unbalanced – cause us to trip and falter. Standing between and using these issues as strengths we can reach great heights.
Jeff’s work can be found in many private collections in Northern California as well as public places. “Balance 1” is located in front of La Hacienda’s patio.
