Work on the "Birds" continues




The first set of wings in stainless steel are complete and additional support on the back side has stiffened them. They are welded to a plate of Corten steel which is bolted to the base. The sculpture can be separated from the base for transport and then bolted together, and finally, welded permanently to the base.

fan mail?

yes, I have received a fan letter along with many favorable comments on the Allium sculptures in the courtyard of my loft building.

"Hey David -

A little "fan mail" here....

I wanted to salute you for the marvelous sculpture currently gracing (alas, temporarily) the courtyard.

The first time I beheld it, it literally stopped me in my tracks.

Graceful, whimsical and wondrous, just on its own merit. Then, as I continued to admire and ponder, it occurred to me what it represents. As a gardener, I'm constantly fascinated by the forms and mute engineering of flowers. You've captured the Allium with remarkable forthrightness. Like a soaring silver firework.

Nice job-- Lucky Colorado

Matt"


thanks Matt!
