About This Project

Kelp Forest

Size: 30′ X 20′

Material: shedua wood and bronze

Method: welded, carved, forged

A commissioned piece for a private residence, Kelp Forest provides an artistic focal point to the large stairway. The scale of the stairway and its walls necessitated a large sculpture. Built in sections and then seamlessly connected, the piece is more than 30 feet long and 20 feet high. An especially appealing feature of this kelp forest is the overhead section that curves between the walls, providing a powerful sense of flow as well as a dimensional dynamic that makes the entire structure seem to be in motion.
