A series of cloud formations for the tops of flower poles in Downtown Edmonds.  Lead Artist. Fabricated by Chas Guidry.

The Design is inspired by early cloud research by Luke Howard: “Since there is no visible distinction between a reported sighting and an imaginary glimpse, clouds live as figments in the mind just as fully as they live as entities in the sky.”

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehow

it’s cloud illusions I recall

I really don’t know clouds at all.
