Last week, Nova Scotia artist Bill Gimby hauled a very heavy and very beautiful sculpture up the stairs of the gallery. I loved it immediately. I loved the lines. I loved the stones. I loved the nautical feel.
Do you know what it is? Bill asked. A sculpture? A buoy? I guessed. I got the look that mainlanders often get. It's a killick. Look it up.
Definition of killick (from merriam-webster.com)
