My current project! For Blinn College in Brenham, Texas.
I have been commissioned by Blinn College to sculpt a ten-foot tall steel sculpture to be placed in front of the Blinn Band Hall. Working with the Music Department, especially Larry Campbell, the Music Director there for many years, I designed a contemporary form that says music... and if all goes well it will also make music!
What you are looking at is the maquette for this project, a tin miniature.
The shiny windy silvery part will be made to be like keys, that can be struck to make different "notes." Construction is to begin very soon on this, the first sculpture for that campus!
