Client: High Point Longstreet Clinic
Location: Braselton, GA, United States
Completion date: 2017
Artwork budget: $30,000
The work is made of stainless steel with armature inside, mounted on a steel powder coated base. Work stands 25' tall, 10.5' wide by 5' deep. It was installed January of 2017.
It is an entry way piece, located on a major highway and the entrance to the High Point Longstreet Medical facility. The name came from the developer, calling it "Ascelphius", who in history was known as the Greek god of health and well being.
As a sculptor, I make many maquettes. This maquette was borrowed to show as an example " of what was possible" during a board meeting, where one of the developers fell in love with it and commissioned the work on the spot. We had two structural engineers help with the mount down and internal armature design.
This is brushed single direction grain on 300 series stainless steel.
