The Greek god Hephaestus

Arriving here on earth after being thrown off Mt. Olympus by his father Zeus, and falling for days, Hephaestus is the Greek god of artisans and craftspeople.

The idea of falling for days is the inspiration for this sculpture.

This sculpture uses ambient light and the natural movement of the viewer to activate the surface with spots of light. Hephaestus Rising is available for sale.

Chosen as one of 6 new sculptures for installation on public land, Hephaestus Rising stands by the Providence River, South Water St. Providence, RI near Waterfire.
