Striking Stainless Steel Sculpture with upsweeping height required – with maximum width of 60 inches. The sculpture was made of 1″ thick marine grade stainless steel as the structural parameters in Florida require public art to withstand 180 mph hurricane winds. The finish was Tnemec Fluoropolymer in order to withstand the harsh climate.


The integration was critical as the plinth width was fixed due to the setting.


I worked closely with structual engineer, fabricator, and painter to achieve the required results.
