Cattail Fence

Jeffry Loy
Mild steel, forged and painted

This steel work fence repeats the shape of a cattail plant, which is a unique wetland plant characterized by its tall grassy appearance and flowering spikes. The depiction of cattails in a steel fence reflects the combined natural and man-made contexts of Dean Rusk Park.

It was designed by metalworker Jeffry Loy, who combines old-world blacksmithing and modern technology. His works tend to be organic with strong figurative elements, giving a fanciful yet recognizable representation of the natural world.
