The Orb and Serpent provided a one of a kind entrance to the Boston Flower and Garden Show in 2016. Designed and organized by DSWA member Brian Fairfield, these features illustrate the variety of interesting things that can be done with stone. The Serpent is constructed with a Herringbone pattern that is not uncommon in Cornwall UK. The intermittent white stones are called "Through Stones” which are placed for structural stability rather than for decoration. Group projects create community for craftspeople that generally work alone during the work year. Sharing ideas keeps the craft moving forward.
