Ken Spiering 1950- Sculpture Artist Spokane, Washington
Born in Wyoming in 1950 and now residing in the rural Palouse country of eastern Washington, Ken's life's work has been that of a professional artist. Since earning a bachelor's degree in art at Gonzaga University and a MFA from the University of Idaho, Mr. Spiering's emphasis has always been to master the design, drawing and painting of highly credible, yet contemporary images from those richest moments in nature.

These cast bronze cougar sculptures, one male and one female, were commissioned in 1993 and installed at The Plaza in 1995. The title "Cataract," was chosen to reference the cats, also being synonymous with 'cascade' and 'waterfall.' It could also suggest having a little blindness in the beginning of a relationship.
