This rather avant-garde sculpture was installed in Taddle Creek Park just down the block from Tuesday's large house. Titled "The Vessel", it was done by artist Ilan Sandler and is made of 4km of stainless steel rod, the approximate length of Taddle Creek which once ran through downtown Toronto from Wychwood Park to Lake Ontario. The creek was buried many years ago with only the section through Wychwood still above ground. The sculpture was installed in June 2011 and water runs up the rods and falls in a gentle stream from the edge of the pitcher. I think the pylon on top was probably a recent installation by kids!
