Sculptor to create 6-tiered fountain
Downtown Hagerstown pedestrians will get a chance to witness a sculpture in the making this spring.
Waynesboro, Pa., sculptor John Bottomley will be creating a 13-foot-high, six-tiered fountain in the front window of the former Tristate Electrical Supply Co. Inc. building at 38 S. Potomac St.
Bottomley has been commissioned to do the piece for a funeral home to be built at Rest Haven Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue. He said he expects it to take him four to six weeks to complete the fountain.
Bottomley said he will sculpt the fountain, then make a mold from the sculpture and cast it in concrete. The fountain will go in the funeral home's lobby.
