E PLURIBUS UNUM ( Latin for out of many, one ) was the motto of our country and was printed on our money before “ in god we trust” replaced it.

Recently, right wing internet sites have used the Latin motto for their own purposes, which precipitated the evolution of my piece from E PLURIBUS UNUM” to “ SOLIDARITY “ which actually represents the meaning behind the piece far better than the old title



The Artist

Rick Davis makes metal come to life.

His methods of shaping and coloring scrap metal result in icons of nature and spirit. Rick's childhood experiences working with his auto mechanic dad in their garage in Orange County gave him a lifelong love for making things work.

Inspired by the practical and the spiritual, Rick incorporates his Celtic roots, his yoga practice, and his appreciation for Native American culture into his work. Upon relocating near the Little Spokane river in 2005, the area’s wildlife added yet another creative spark to his work.

Rick has found Spokane to be a great place to raise a family and create his art.
