Slater Sculpture

Overview

Stainless steel and glass sculpture; 13 feet overall; base is 8 feet.Sculpture is pin-bearing mounted and can rotate, but is not wind or motor activated.

Goals

The goal was to have a sculpture for people to see as they enter the building. The blue stacked glass is highlighted with the back lighting of the sun.

Process

Jane Thompson contacted me through CODAworx and we agreed to make the sculpture on a taller pedestal to avoid problems which may arise with "hands" on.
