Firebrand Glass: Celebrate This Beautiful Place

We are creating  a public art sculpture to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary that will be unveiled on July 1st near the Alberta Legislature. When we started to research  this project we looked at historical images of the site where the sculpture will be located and realized that not that long ago the streets were mud and the vehicles were horse drawn carts. Our goal with the sculpture was to give the viewer of a sense of what existed here before and to celebrate all that has been created in this beautiful place.  Our piece is comprised of two stainless steel spheres.  Inside of each circle is glass that either has a historical image or a pattern. To view more images of the sculpture and the historical images  from the archives visit our website. The images below show the original design and the metal fabrication.
