Feel the Pinch Copper Sculpture by Morgan Raimond

“Feel the Pinch” is a giant blue crab claw, clad in copper, created by metal artist Morgan Raimond. It was installed near Chestertown’s marina for RiverFest 2017.

The copper claw reaches out of the water and arches toward the pedestrian bridge along the Chester River. The sculpture morphs in the changing light of the day and is an iconic symbol for Chestertown and the Chester River. It is illuminated at night.

This sculpture represents many aspects of the region today. The strong, menacing claw of the blue crab is juxtaposed with the current fragile eco-system of its environment.
