Expansion is a limited edition bronze sculpture with electricity. This particular work was purchased by a private collector for their home in Joshua Tree, California. It is displayed outdoors on a custom stone base.
I cast each of the pieces in bronze and assembled the pieces so they float apart from one another. I then brought in a lighting specialist and we built an innovative and unique lighting system to make the sculpture glow from within. It turned out even better than I conceived. And the most rewarding part is that the image of “Expansion” means so much to everyone who sees it. I receive letters every day! I feel like I really did my job successfully!

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
