Founder of ROC Carbon
Barbara Sager wanted to create a tribute shadowbox to Morgan Ricks, who founded ROC Carbon in 1956. She gathered some of his personal belongings like cuff links, tie pin, pipe and lighter to be placed in the frame. The design also incorporated drawings for industrial rotating equipment that the company manufactures for refineries and power plants to help generate energy. We mounted the drawings, parts and personal items in layers to add dimension and resemble how it might have looked on Ricks’ desk while he was working. Today Morgan Ricks’ grandson is the president of the company and this shadowbox is proudly displayed in the lobby entrance.
