This artwork references the small water sample containers sometimes used to collect water for contaminant testing. Etched onto the metal is a portion of the Clean Water Act. The cut-outs are based on an aerial photograph of a fracking field in Colorado. On the lid, the logo of the United States Environmental Protection Agency is decorated with an opal.

This is a proto-type; purchased artwork can have specific aerial imagery used to create the cut-out pattern. Please contact me to discuss design options.
