New Commission: Heliotropis

Here is a sketch of my new project Heliotropis. It is a solar powered kinetic piece, a flower that blooms with the day and responds to its environment. The colors are still uncertain, i've been considering red for the petals, but I like this violet a lot... the flower and stamen will be glass, the stem stainless. This work is being commissioned by Beth Deutch and Larry Rubin in Rumson, NJ.

Rose Colored Lenses

Here is the installation at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre: more images to come....
