Stile di Famiglia

| | | | |

Hi all, here is some picts and info on the fork sculpture which got installed at the beginning of may.

Stile di Famiglia (Family Style)

After being short listed for this sculpture call in the Towns Little Italy development in Omaha NE, we were asked to come up with proposals that were distinctly Italian and represented the feel for the neighborhood, which seemed very fun, friendly, and in some ways close to each other, much like a family. I kept coming back to the idea of a big Italian family sitting around a table eating dinner, everyone talking about their life or how their week went, laughing and enjoying the company.

Fork Sculpture-Part 2

| | | | | |

Hi all, been a while since I've posted any work. We just installed the first half of the fork and spaghetti sculpture Monday and I got a couple of picts. Still need to put the finish on the bottom part of the fork and there is a decorative piece that goes on the front face of the fork handle. I used 14ga SS on this sculpture,as opposed to 12ga on the last one, over a structural framework and skeleton and kind of regretted it on the handle. For some reason the middle portion of the fork handle on the front side caved in between the skeleton, but just that 4' stretch and only on the front. The decorative piece will cover most of it up, but it's still annoying and I have absolutely know idea why it did it. I'm aware of stresses and all, but it should have done it on the back as well I would have thought.
