This week we did a steel obelisk outdoor sculpture for a friend and client and should be done this week and off to install it in her yard. We are getting ready to paint our building and get it looking a bit more current along with finishing the build out that has been on pause for the sculpture gallery and custom furniture showroom.
Finally made it to the corn maze at traders village in San Antonio. We got some good San Antonio fruit treats and then off to the studio to do a demo for a class. We had a class from Our Lady of the Lake here in San Antonio come out to ask questions about sculpture making and running an art business. Autumn did some power hammer demo action and we showed them some of the tricks of the trade. Autumn is also gearing up to make some sculpture for a client that commissioned a pair of sculptures for their new home. Working on a large three tier custom iron luxury chandelier at the same time.
We have a friend who is retired from the Art Restoration industry. She worked for many museums and private collectors over the years. So now she wants her very own large steel outdoor sculpture of an Obelisk. This one will be a beautiful corten steel leather brown so it will never need any attention over the years, just to enjoy seeing art outside in the yard. We also made two industrial bespoke cone shape end tables that will get a hardwood table top in black walnut, pics to come soon. We did some patina magic on a sign for USAA at the headquarters. We also did a table for another public artist that we just love to pieces. This table will go on a deck on her roof. Its top is actually an extra enamel panel she had made as a maquette of the sculpture she installed to add to the Public Art in San Antonio and the Department of Arts and Culture. Finally Autumn is working on some of her own sculpture pieces this week that will hang out in our new art gallery we are working on getting done soon. Headed up to Austin soon to check out the sculpture scene up there for fun. We also are working on some corporate art for a health care company that wanted something a bit more custom so they commissioned us to do their logo in a much more sculptural way. Hopefully these get to live at all the locations and could be a part of brand recognition.
We recently got done with a large public art installation in Dallas Texas. This one requested something simple and American in theme. These were large aluminum laser cut eagles we suspended with aircraft cable in the lobby of this Government building. The building was a DMV/ Passport center and was just about to re open after an extensive remodel. This place had a 55 foot high ceiling and the lift we had to get was crazy tall and shaky! Thanks to our mastermind friend Mike we got this thing in within one day! Ready to fabricate the next large public art sculpture that we are starting this week. If you have any custom sculpture ideas or have an idea you want to commission let us know!
