Diego Harris is an artist who lives in Upper Lake, Lake County, California and displays and sells his large steel sculpture art in Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma counties. Some of his sculptures now, also, reside in Marin County, Sacramento, Concord, Carmel and Eureka.

Water Spirit is a free flowing abstract sculpture made of corten steel. Corten steel is made of steel with added elements that enhance it's ability to withstand the elements. As it is now it is still bright metallic in color but over time it will develop a fine patina of red orange rust. This rust patina will form a protective layer that helps to keep deeper more detrimental rust from forming. With Water Spirit I have tried to capture the free motion found in water in the form of welded steel. I often find inspiration in the designs and patterns that I see in nature.
