  • This piece started as I listened to election coverage and debates during the 2012 presidential election.  Often I would have the radio or television on as background noise in the car or studio and I would pick up on certain things here or there.  I noticed that I would perk up every time there was a mention of religion in these political talks.  I began thinking about how they are or are not separated and how they influence each other.
  • For this sign, I started embracing industrial spot welds and construction techniques.
  • WIth the face-plate removed, the simple electronic assembly can be seen.  Porcelain light sockets and threaded hollow lamp pipe are safe, simple and clean.  
  • This piece is intended to be clean and simple, powdercoating was the best option to obtain a perfect color and application.  
  • Now, with the lights turned on.  Compact fluorescent bulbs were used to keep energy consumption low and it provides a pure, bright light.
  • I was on the lookout for a perfect chain-pull for the switch.  My friend ended up finding the ideal piece.
  • Pictured with low lighting, the colors really pop.  The blend is consistent from top to bottom.
