Gallery Detail:

" As I was gazing out across a calm, foggy North Edisto, when the sky and water were one, a black skimmer sliced by, inspiring me with its reflection. "

The Black Skimmer was Grainger's first "reflective" sculpture. There have been two others: the Least Bittern in 1987 and the Purple Gallinule in 2000. Although not immediately acclaimed, these reflective sculptures have become reference pieces for him.

The highly-polished Skimmer Bracelet in sterling silver is derived from this sculpture.
