Sold artwork may be available as a print – ask me.


Design is all around us. It is invisible until we take note. This happened to me on a trip to Israel. I saw something unusual on the ground. It was an access cover in the pavement for a cable utility. It said “HOT”. I took my first picture of a manhole cover.

I saw many striking designs for manhole covers. I thought about how a designed utility cover conveys municipal pride. Design beautifies.

Design is important and makes the world beautiful, even a lowly utility cover.
