A Washington, D.C. company commissioned a free-standing piece to fill an empty platform under a beautiful, curving staircase. The company logo is the letter C in the Trajan font, and I decided this would be the logical design for a sculpture in that challenging area.
The staircase swoops down, limiting the workable area but also allowing for a sense of spontaneity. To introduce changeability, the sculpture sits on a heavy metal pin, which allows it to rotate. The base matches the wood of the platform, so it appears to float.
“Big C” was the working title of the piece, and everyone liked it so much we kept the title. Now, when visitors come to the office, photos are taken with it as the backdrop.
