|I was inspired by the patterned strip of metal, which was a gift from a friend. I determined this would be used as a see-through trim.|
I welded a wide weighted base, putting feet on an arc, for stability.
I combined two sets of similar shapes. They looked like two beings.
Now this took on a narrative of its own.
I named it Ad Astra, to indicate that it was related to the stars, perhaps a team of beings involved with stellar connections.
It has simple elegant lines.
It gives off a feeling of power. Yet it is light enough to transport easily.
I really enjoyed engineering the simplicity of this piece.
This sculpture wants to be on a table or pedestal, inside or outside.
