These are two 30" spheres I built from recycled pipes and square tubes. One is suspended from above and the other is perched on a ledge 10 ft above the floor.
This was a project for a client that owns an apple orchard. Her well pump had to be relocated at the entry to their house, so she asked for a steel cube to hide the pump. I embellished the cube with an apple branch, a steel sphere (apple), and stainless steel behind the cutouts. It it also meant to serve as a pedestal for a large planting vessel.
This is a project in a home near Donner Lake, California. The piece is composed of 4 36"x36" squares that are mounted above a hearth. It is scaled map of Donner Lake and the surrounding mountains cut from Corten steel. Each square weighs approximately 100 pounds.
The piece is comprised of 8 identical shapes that come together to create a sphere. It is a simple and elegant sculpture that works well on a bookshelf, or even in the landscape (I make them up to 4 ft tall).
name of your choosing...
"Nutsphere" just didn't sound right for this piece, so I asked people on facebook for their ideas. The piece weighs about 20 pounds and is made from reclaimed large nuts. Here are my favorites:
-"Socket to Me"
-"Nothing to Sphere"
-"Holes in One"
Fire feature and water feature
I designed and built the water feature in the background and the fire feature in the foreground.
