From the Sketchbook


The note says 1994 so who knows what I was working on at that time. There was a time frame there when I built quite a few of these stone and wood benches, and I was always looking for way to incorporate some other type of sculptural element in the project.

Or . . . since it was December 22nd, I might have been sitting in a Waffle House somewhere, whipped out my Rotring pen and just started doodling away.

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.
