"Playground" was designed with much whimsy. I let the metal tell me where it wanted to go. This allowed me to just have fun while creating this piece and not worry about the end result. It is all stainless steel and I heated it in some places to obtain the beautiful colors.
This artwork is designed as a maquette with public art in mind. When placed outdoors, the colors on the piece change throughout the day as the light changes. The shadows created with the circular pattern also change and move throughout the day as the sun moves. The piece looks completely different when viewed from different angles.
