A swinging door threatening a floor-to-ceiling window prompted Jean and Craig Baker to seek a beautiful solution to their dilemma. Because the window and glass-framed door faced their beautifully landscaped backyard, something attractive would add to the scene.

Kevin's answer is Tuned 'Tails, a piece inspired by another artist's beautiful, free-standing sculpture, to which Kevin's small "pond" of brass with a gaggle of brass cattails is a tribute. One of the 'tails sits atop a U-shaped piece that swings over to fit neatly around the door when it's open.

When it's not acting as a handle, that cattail joins its compatriots, and they make lovely music together. It's a gentle tinkling sound - not at all like breaking glass! - that adds to the special atmosphere in the Baker's beautiful backyard.
