Sculpture of Orange Lawrence
                      by
Donna Pascoe & Peter Turrell
In the spring of 2005, the Town of Orangeville commissioned Peter Turrell and Donna Pascoe to create a 7'-6" high sculpture of Orange Lawrence, founder of Orangeville, Ontario, Canada.
 
Orange Lawrence was known as the man who brought life to the town, having set up the first Grist Mill, Lumber Mill and Tavern in the town of Orangeville.  He was also the town Postmaster for a time.
 
He was born in the USA in 1796 and moved to Canada where he remained until his death by his own hand in 1861. 
The statue of Orange Lawrence began with the proposal of a plastercene model, depicting the
hands-on, self-made character of the man.
He is shown with his sleeves rolled up, jacket thrown over his shoulder and a set of rolled plans in his hand surveying the area for his new buildings. 
He stands with his foot raised on a limestone block as the Mills were built of limestone from the area.  
The final piece made of magnesium phosphate, stands in front of the Town Hall on Broadway, in Orangeville, Ontario.
