The Urban Eddy - my first public art project - Installed:)
It's been six months of work, but really years of dreaming about scaling up my art!
When I won the small Historic South End Creative Lab grant last summer, I wasn't sure if it would be a temporary or larger project. They loved my idea and worked with me to make it happen.
Actual install took a couple of days (lot of ground to cover). By midday Tuesday, January 16, 2018, the job was complete. I'm extremely grateful to all the folks that made my dream a reality... Historic South End, Charlotte Center City, City of Charlotte's Urban Planning, other creatives that helped me capture my kiln glass for printing, and TPM Color Lab. (And, of course, the good Lord for blessing me with this opportunity:)
The rest of post is cool pics from install. (Sorry for large size of files. When I resized, they lost clarity. May edit later with smaller images. Had to get on my website. Simply too cool to NOT share. Plus, some of my followers are not on Instagram - which is the main place I'm posting these days. Completely left Facebook at beginning of 2018.)
Enjoy! If you can, go see The Urban Eddy in real life.

Promise I'll share better images as I get my hands on them.
These photos are just to give you a taste of the scale and beauty. But, not one image comes close to what The Urban Eddy looks like in person! (Will share as I get better pictures that capture translucency and luminosity of these rounds.)
Until then, Happy New Year!
