Rex Hospital Commission

and installing this 16' tall sculpture

for Rex Hospital in Raleigh, NC,

during the winter of 2016-early 2017.


Otters in the Mist

The next piece the NC Zoo has asked me to make for them will be a challenge of a different sort. We'll be needing to build in some misting elements to cool the hot summer day visitors.



Now completed and installed, this sculpture was my major focus for Winter 2012-2013. Pictured above is the maquette, and you can see some of the steps involved in going from there to macro scale by following the links.
