An abstraction of a water jet, firing into the sky and curling back down. The mottled blue paint job gives off the appearance of a column of water, cresting and foaming as it gets higher. Tubular stainless steel accents act as interruptions in the water's skyward flow; one might even be considered its own jet.

Barry Gunderson is a professor of sculpture at Kenyon college. His interpretations of water and other everyday items, glint with a unique cartoonish style.
