This is a series of 13 black and white granite and marble domes are set along a path in Mineral Springs Park. Their placement leads viewers out into meadow areas. The heights of the domes vary with some curving low to the ground and others arching abruptly out of the grass. They range in diameter from two feet to five feet. The black domes reflect the sky and clouds, while the white domes glow in the evening. The text around the base of the domes talks about different cloud formations and the types of weather they bring. The text on the white domes speaks of celestial patterns.
