Juan de Fuca

Living in a highly active and dangerous earthquake zone, Lisa Turner found inspiration for this piece in the precarious stability of the Pacific Northwest’s geological plates. The Juan de Fuca Table is named after the fault line that runs parallel to the B.C. and Washington coast, and is designed as two separate pieces that appear as one, reflecting the misconception of the earth’s stable surface.

An edition of this work was acquired by the Canadian National Capital Commission Collection for its innovative design and is displayed at the Canadian Governor General Residence in Ottawa.
