Revelstoke blacksmith’s sculpture to sit in front of city hall

Pine Cone debuted at LUNA in 2019

The next piece of art to be featured in the planter in front of Revelstoke City Hall was made by local blacksmith Kyle Thornley.

Pine Cone, was a part of LUNA Nocturnal Art and Wonder in 2019 and was chosen by the public art committee for the location.

“It’s wonderful that it is a local artist this year,” said Mayor Gary Sulz at the Jan. 14 council meeting.

Thornley owns Metal Mind Forge in the Big Eddy.

The city is leasing the art for $5,000 a year with funds from the public art reserve.
