Wiregrass - Blades of Metal

The making of this 18-foot tall sculpture in the shape of grass blades forming a "W" involved drawing each crossection of the "blade", cutting the pieces out of aluminum and welding them on the curved core post. The structure was then filled with fiberglass, sanded smooth and bolted to mounting plates. Painting was to be done on site (in Florida) after installation.

Very ornate internally illuminated directories with 3-layer posts and digitally printed graphics.
