WISH sculpture is installed

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Children have been picking dandelion flowers that have gone to seed, blowing and “making a wish” for centuries. It is that very concept of focusing thought, gathering energy and releasing it into the world which provides the inspiration for this sculpture. The shopping center this public art is located in has been a dream of the community for nearly 20 years, bringing a much needed grocery store and other amenities to this area. WISH celebrates this dream-come-true for the community with a sculpture made from marine-grade stainless steel and Cor-ten (weathering) steel. The piece includes a 7-foot long and a 10-foot long wall sculpture of flying-away dandelion seeds, and three 25-foot tall dandelion seeds in a nearby planter.

Article about 9/11 Memorial in Designlife magazine

Friday, February 28th, 2014

“It’s rare that one gets to work on a piece with such weighty emotional impact, so I was very interested from the start,” Satow explains. “I also knew that it was a risky project in many ways. So many people were deeply affected by the events that day. I knew I had to create something that would honor not only the memories of those lost, but also do justice to the emotions of the people that live on in the shadow of that day.”

Inflorescence – mirror polished stainless steel sculpture for UAA

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

We are very excited to announce that Heath Satow Sculpture was recently awarded a commission to create a sculpture for the University of Alaska Anchorage’s ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building (UAA CPISB). Below are two renderings of the design and the video presentation of the sculpture. The video presentation shows a 360 degree view of the sculpture design. The work will be fabricated in Satow’s warehouse studio from marine grade (316) stainless steel, will be nearly 15 feet tall and 17 feet wide, and the surfaces will be buffed to a tough mirror-polished finish. The project is expected to be completed by the end of May 2015.

Polishing, polishing, polishing stainless steel

Monday, August 13th, 2012

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.

A nice welcome to Korea

Monday, September 19th, 2011

I was invited to participate as the US representative for the 14th Annual Icheon Sculpture Symposium. I’ll be here in Icheon, S. Korea for the next three weeks creating a two-ton stainless steel sculpture that will permanently reside in a new park here. After I arrived and was taken to the site where the opening ceremonies will be, I saw this giant banner with my name and flag on on it. Quite a warm welcome indeed. 🙂

Studio Gecko

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

We thought we’d spend Memorial Day this year grilling at the sculpture studio and having a little fun spicing up the exterior wall of the studio’s parking lot. For no good reason other than to entertain ourselves, we painted a 16-foot-tall blue gecko with a fully three-dimensional yellow eye peering over the gate out into the street. Studio gecko is watching you!
