Growing Home has made it to Park 12 in San Diego and was successfully installed by our great team that traveled all the way from Tucson, AZ. This monumental seashell sculpture celebrates all things San Diego with the rich history of the city laser-cut into the beach-inspired stainless steel sculpture. Here are some photos of the installation!

Growing Home is in its final stages of fabrication and our team is now focusing on getting the internal LED lighting all set up within the massive sculpture. At night, our powerful point-source lights will project through the perforated stainless steel shell to activate the space around the sculpture with the projected silhouettes of the words that make up the surface. The illuminated landscape around the shell becomes a magical space for exploration at night and when viewed from above. Here are some photos of the installation of the bright […]
Growing Home is really starting to come together into its final form. The sculpture is a monumental depiction of a spiraled seashell; perfect for its new home in beachy San Diego, California! The sculpture is going to be installed in Park 12 near Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres! The shell is perforated with text that tells the history of San Diego. The text is arranged in bands that spiral down the shell in the same way that a shell grows from one season to the next. The […]

The shell sculpture is perforated with text that tells the history of San Diego. Check back for more updates on the progression of Growing Home, or check out our previous blog post here.
At the beginning of the year, Camaraderie was installed at a brand new, state of the art, veterans clinic in San Jose, California. As the landscaping and construction came to a close and all of the finishing touches for the facility were put in place, we were able to get an official glimpse of the family of three laser-cut, stainless steel sculptures in their beautiful new home. The clinic has an ultra-modern, sustainable design and is meant to offer a “healing oasis” for patients. We hope that Camaraderie can leave those […]
“When you are in a dangerous spot, no one wants to be alone. We have to survive together.” “We never forget the people we served with. Even if we don’t talk to them, we always think of them.” “We are a family. We are serious about what we have to do. You never have to worry about someone undermining you. It is all about helping and making sure that everyone is OK.” “It’s kind of a family deal. But they are closer than family.” These are some of the […]
The fabrication of Camaraderie is complete! If you haven’t been following our progress, Camaraderie is a series of 3 stainless steel sculptures that celebrate the unique and enduring companionships that are built within the United States military tradition. Recently, we carefully wrapped up the massive metal sculptures and got them ready for the journey to their home in a new VA clinic in San Jose, California. Check out some photos of our team loading up the colossal shipment below, and stay tuned for blog posts on Camaraderie’s installation and finished […]
Incrediball Journey through Stanford Campus is a new Ball Machine Sculpture recently installed in the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital! The balls travel through this custom machine and give viewers the opportunity to experience Stanford Campus in an entirely new way. As visitors watch, the ball travels along the track, passing many of the artistic, academic, historical and memorable places on the campus, reimagined as small ball machine devices and models. We’re very excited to see this project finally complete!
We’ve been working for a few months now on a new ball machine called Incrediball Journey through Stanford Campus. This new ball machine features many new devices as well as site specific miniatures that reference real buildings and landmarks that can be found throughout Stanford. The balls travel through the machine as students travel across the campus; as visitors watch, the ball travels past Hoover Tower, the Bing Concert Hall, the Stanford Stadium and more. We hope this new machine will excite viewers of all ages and provide them with […]

After Camaraderie finished metal fabrication, the sculptures were moved over to our shop to begin testing! Our electronics team has been continuously testing the lights while the our fabrication team prepares the sculptures for shipment. Camaraderie will be installed at a veteran’s clinic in Palo Alto, CA in early 2018. The piece was inspired by the strong sense of camaraderie found among the members of the armed forces. The sculpture integrates words collected from veterans to tell their exceptional story of friendship and solidarity.
