||Blue Sky Rainbow|
Item No. 1898
Advance planning and shop preparation are required before attempting any large complex design.
To train up to an advanced piece the team produces conceptual versions employing similar techniques but
with lower overall risk.
This allows for experimentation that informs the process which ultimately leads to the final mature design.
The weight, scale and complexity of the early attempts are designed to challenge the team while putting them within reach of the proposed design.
The Blue Sky Rainbow is an early generation version of
the concept piece called Waterspout (see item #1734).
This fluid design was modeled on stop action images of splash reflexes as they occur in nature. Each sculpture
is its own unique expression of this natural phenomena.
