Project Description

Entry 02 – Take Flight!

In my first entry I briefly mentioned a commission that’s in process. I’m getting much closer to completion and looking forward to beginning the installation of the piece. “Light as a Feather” is a steel sculpture I created for a private residence in the Tampa Bay area. It is approximately 48″ x 60″ x 2″ and features a brown hammered finish. Essentially it all began with a photograph of a feather I captured and manipulated digitally using the Affinity software referred to in my previous post. The resulting design was replicated with sheet steel via a CNC plasma cutter. Following that I welded it to a frame for depth and support. After sealing it all up with the paint and getting the hardware ready, it’s all set!

 The next entry is on the way and will include this piece installed, along with some other tools I procured, as well as a recap of what else has been going on. Until then….
