We developed this large scale work with Sara Barker from sketches and maquettes that she brought in to discuss with us. From this maquette we produced a scale 3D model of the sculpture from which to fabricate. We produced a method for prefabricating a series of bespoke soldered brass joints made to specific geometries in our studio and then assembled these with brass tubes at The Baltic during the install. The material include brass tubes and connections, aluminium section, copper elements, low iron glass and stainless steel. The installation involved height access equipment and specialist glass lifting gear due to sizes and weights involved.
