Bill Lorraine

 

 

Key West sculptor Bill Lorraine chooses a very special indigenous stone as his medium: the corner stones of local Victorian-era Conch houses which were deep-mined over 100 years ago from the Upper Keys. He writes, “They are the symbols of the determination of the early Conch families to survive the extremes of the weather in Key West: hurricanes, tropical thunderstorms and summer monsoons. These stones are literally shaped by the history of Key West.”
