Bill Lorraine


Key West sculptor Bill Loraine uses a very special indigenous stone as his medium. He collects the cornerstones of Victorian era Conch houses in Key West. He writes, “They are the symbols of the determination of the early Conch families to survive the extremes of weather found in Key West—hurricanes, tropical thunderstorms and summer monsoon. They speak of history, of life in earlier times both in their prehistoric creation as part of the land itself, and also in their most recent use.”
