The Torus or donut shape is a continuing source of inspiration. The parameters with these models are: the number of cuts, offset of pieces from center, tilt of the pieces, minor diameter and thickness.
This torus or donut shape sculpture has been modeled and is being 3d printed in plastic and stainless steel as a study. Three equally opposing helical cuts at 120 degrees. Also shown are studies at 30 degree incremental twists along the z axis.
My sculpture ‘Abstract Cylinder #1’ is front and center on the home page of ‘SaatchiArt.com’! This is a new collection called ‘All Things Abstract’ curated by Katherine Henning of Saatchi. It appears to be the only sculpture and is the main, thumbnail image!
These are a series of donut studies. Industrial pipe elbows are welded into donut shapes. Helical lines of varying ‘rises’ are laid out and cut offset from each around the donuts. This video shows some of that process.
Our family installed a sculpture to commemorate my beloved mother, who passed at the age of 93 at the Tucson’s Medical Center’s hospice facility in May 2014; It was a life changing experience. The hospice facility ‘Peppi’s House‘ was amazing. The compassion and love the staff have is remarkable. The artwork there really helped our family during a difficult time. I can only hope this optimistic angel figure might help another. The bronze angel was cast at the InBronze foundry located in Mt. Morris, IL.
In 2003 the architectural firm of Destefano and Partners contacted Karl Geckler LLC to create a marble sculpture for the lobby reception desk at the recently opened Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Chicago.
