CARLSBAD — Heritage Park near the Flume is now the permanent home to one large and three small quarter-inch plate metal roadrunners designed by Terry Fuson and welded by Jeff Cornwell.
Some time back, Fuson made and gave away a few small metal roadrunners to sit on desktops. The roadrunners were made of large nails, nuts and parts of washers.
He gave one to Heritage Park committee member Dale Janway, who then had the idea to pursue a larger family version to place along the retaining wall in front of the park pavilion.
“At one time someone said to me, ‘You should sell these,'” Fuson said. “I told them why, they give away real good.”
Local artist Gerri Mattson offered to enlarge the small design so it would be easier to cut and assemble.
