Ripple Affect

Hi all, just finished installing a sculpture up in Yankton, SD called Ripple Affect. It was for an annual call and was themed around the river that runs right by the town. This was the first project that I modeled in Rhino, and it still amazes me how much the setting affects the look of the sculpture. I was "large" in my shop, but looks tiny in the setting with the large trees. I definitely would have made this piece 2-3 times bigger if this was it's permanent home. Aside from making it bigger, I think the only thing i might have done differently would have been to stretch the rings out laterally, so there was more of a horizontal plane, but who knows. I'm always so critical right after a piece is done. The stems are made from mild steel with a rust patina, and the rings from 16ga stainless. I used a flapper disc finish making big loops around the ring so that the different passes would reflect the light differently adding to the effect of the water rippling out, it worked well, but you can't really see it in these picts.
