Client has a steep banked backyard landscape with a generous observation deck. She wanted a permanent installation and focal point.
Color was really important. The client wanted me to match the color of the new piece with a couple other pieces of Asian art already installed that had a blue/green patina. She also wanted to create art to fill a space that would cause you to look up to see other plantings higher on the hill.
I met once with the client to figure out the composition and color of each piece as well as the placement to create a pleasing composition. I returned to install the finished pieces on the back landscaped bank
I'm really excited when I have the opportunity to work with clients that are ok with creating an interesting composition, and when they are willing to take time and check out several possibilities of design.

[ 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.
