Key West sculptor Bill Lorraine chooses a very special
indigenous stone as his medium. He collects the corner stones
of Victorian-era Conch houses in Key West. He writes, “They
are the symbols of the determinations of the early Conch
families to survive the extremes of the weather in Key West—hurricanes,
tropical thunderstorms and summer monsoons. They literally
are shaped by history.” Conch (pronounced conk): person
or persons born and raised in Key West.
