These aren’t the final photos, but here are some initial photos of the mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture, Muse, after it was installed a couple weeks ago:
While this won’t be our most public art piece, it is an exciting one. New directions — based on what was learned with the creation of the sculpture in Korea — are coming into focus. And, funny enough, this sculpture’s name will be “Focus.” It’s a water wall fountain for the lobby of a business, and water will flow down the mirror-polished reflective stainless steel surface, further activating the surfaces. Polishing 316 stainless steel is tough work, but the results are worth it. Here’s another sneak peek at this piece now that it is nearing completion.
Work on the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park Hawk Sculpture for El Paso, TX is nearing completion. Below are photos of the stainless steel hawk sculpture with its final oxide patina, the corten steel tree sculpture with a rust finish, and the five related signs that will be placed in different areas of the parks, just prior to getting their rusted finish. The bird sculpture will be mounted at the top of the tree, and the signs will receive graphics that describe the flora and fauna of the park.
The public art for the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park is coming along nicely. The stainless steel hawk will eventually get a special patina that will lend it the bronze-like tones of the animal sculptures I made for the Denver Zoo. Here’s a couple of photos of the hawk in its current state:
The next big public art piece I’m working on is a Harris hawk for the Rio Bosque Wetlands Park in El Paso, TX. This photo shows the stainless steel wings for that sculpture, currently in progress. As shown here, the wing span is almost eleven feet wide.
The 9/11 Memorial I created got a good bit of press, here’s a round-up of a few of the sites covering the sculpture:

If I do say so myself, this sculpture is starting to look really sexy. I can’t wait to get it all installed. Check out the video below to see how the light plays across the surface:
