Tribute to the Oyster Tonger"
Tribute to the Oyster Tonger" was Charles' first
fountainworks design with another artist.. Dedicated
in 1994, the monument is located at the entrance of Annmarie
to water cascading from the culling board, water appears to be
draining off of the Tonger's latest
catch. Working at the foundry and job site Charles installed a pumping system that created the effect that Toby was seeking ... bringing his sculpture of the tonger, an oyster fisherman, to life. The inset image below shows Charles and his father install in the fountainworks as a crane suspends the sculpture.
