Project Description

Sangam Ritual Series


Sangam Ritual Series
Conway, Massachusetts

Former Smith College President Jill Ker Conway commissioned Michael Singer to create an outdoor sculpture for her property in Conway, Massachusetts. This distinctive site is a terraced woodland lot with mature pine trees and small ponds at two levels of the site. Singer created a curved stone retaining wall at the uppermost terrace as a way to unite the garden. The base of the retaining wall forms a platform for Sangam Ritual Series, a granite, bronze and precast concrete sculpture. Sangam Ritual Series encloses a cistern reservoir that is the source for a sculpted runnel and fountain that pours water back into the ponds, slowly aerating and filtering the water and introducing the sound of flowing water into the woodland garden.
