When Brad Oldham and Christy Coltrin created The Wild Crops Collection, they combined iconic fruit and vegetable shapes with animal characteristics to produce tabletop personalities. Sweet Carrot is the first of the collection to be realized as public art. Firmly rooted underground, the bright carrot spends most of its life in hiding, its sweetness only discovered by those who dare to dig deep. The humble sparrow might also escape everyday notice. These examples of raw beauty hold the power to nourish and inspire when examined. Each sculpture in the collection comes with a toast to share. For Sweet Carrot, it is: “May your words be as light as a feather, and as sweet as a carrot, for tomorrow you may eat them.”
