A short video of craning the 18′ tall mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture MUSE into place. The sculpture was still in a protective wrap at this point. Photos of the completed install will be posted soon after the dedication of the sculpture on March 30.

Another sneak peek at the latest mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture in progress in the studio right now. Lot of welding, grinding, and polishing to go. Over 180 feet of welds to polish out on this one before it’s done.

Rio Bosque Hawk Sculpture progress

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

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.
