Kleiner Park Fabrication update

After some delays in the shop, fabrication of the big sculptures is back on track; yay!  About 2 weeks time, & they should be ready for installation at the park; so excited :)
Right now, they are welding on some gussets; these were added to the upper portion of the sculptures for structural support.  In the original design I had these pipe-like things that would have done the same thing, but I felt they were a distraction from the design of the white curves & wind turbines; instead, we created gussets with the same look/feel as the main structure...
I think keeping the focus on the white design elements is going to look/feel better when they are standing up in the park...

Its so exciting to be moving forward on the project again!  Construction on the park is moving along; buildings are going up, roads are in, & my foundations are ready & waiting : )

I will be updating with progress pics every day this week; so stay tuned to see things come together....tomorow we will be experimenting with the curved pipes: it's going to be a process to get the look just right...
More to come tomorrow : )
