Bill Lorriane

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.
