Crane is a majestic sculpture that greets residents and visitors at 1177@Greystone. It is situated at the front entrance of the residential apartment complex that overlooks the Hudson River in Yonkers, NY. It is 7’Hx 5’L x 2’W and fabricated directly in stainless steel. It is perched on a pier-like base created with wood poles, stainless steel and river stones. The graceful, abstracted bird is composed of flowing, continuous ribbon of stainless steel. It appears to be lifting off into flight.


The goal of the project was to create a stunning sculpture that would great residents of this luxury apartment complex. The client who is the CEO of the Ginsburg Development Corporation is a lover of art and recognizes the importance of incorporating sculpture in his exquisitely designed living spaces. The Crane is a symbolizes beauty, harmony, grace and longevity. It represents positive change and living in balance with others. It was my goal to embody these ideas in the sculpture.
