This past January I was commissioned by Dr. David Harrison to design and build a sign for his new location at 222 Washington Street in Gloucester. Dr. Harrison’s desire was to display more than his name on a board. He came to me for an artistic approach, something unique that would also reflect Gloucester and the community as well as his dental business.
   The concept we finally agreed upon is to represent the tooth as a precious object.  I conceived this could be accomplished by placing a tooth into an oyster shell, essentially the idea of replacing a pearl with a tooth. The tooth would become a precious object to be cherished and taken care of while the shell would symbolize Gloucester and the vast ocean surrounding and intertwined with our great community.
