The Jack in the Pulpit flower has only a single symbol directly associated with it - shelter. Because of this, these blooms are frequently traded between family members - usually mothers or fathers to their children - and they represent the safety and protection that the giver is offering to the recipient.

"Haven" showcases a bronze sculpture with an abstract form. It stands on a round, flat base which gives it stability and prominence. The sculpture itself features elongated and flowing shapes resembling the Jack in the Pulpit flower. . The upper section dramatically flares out in wide, curving extensions reminiscent of the blossoming flower. Inside the flower rests a figure, safely protected and content with her surroundings. There are subtle color variations across the sculpture, ranging from dark brown to golden bronze tones, which further accentuate its contours and add depth to its form. Overall, the piece exudes a sense of peace and safety.
