Earlier this year, I created a gateway from 4 pieces of Indiana Limestone titled "Attraction".
It sold to a private collector and was delivered on December 1.
Each of the 2 main elements are about 6-1/2 feet high by 3 feet by 2 feet. The top portions have a polished curving outer shell that contrast with the highly textured seed patterns (they also look a little bit like wings...)
The bottom portions have complexly carved roots covered in furrows of chisel marks. Those forms emerge from a central polished cubic shape.
Meg used her crane truck to retrieve the gateway from the sculpture garden.
Dereck Sheroan loaded the pieces onto his crane truck after we had loaded a large figurative piece of Meg's. We then made the trip to the site on a private estate east of Louisville.
After installing Meg's piece at the site, we unloaded my gateway onto pallets brought to us by a forklift.
Joseph (on the left) was great help with installing Meg's piece and operating the forklift for unloading my pieces.
We used 4 separate pallets for the 4 pieces of the gateway. The site has not been prepared yet for the final installation. I'll post final pictures of the installed work soon. This basically concludes my year, as far as stone work is concerned. I will be spending the rest of December doing design work for next year's sculptures..
