#throwbackthursday

This was my first historic bell project and was commissioned by the Ukrainian Catholic Church here in Philadelphia.
The installation was timed to coincide with Pope Francis’ visit to our city in September 2015.
Working with architect @jobo_jph we placed their bell, cast in 1919 in this stainless steel and gold leaf structure in front of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
It was a great opportunity for me to learn about their faith and tradition.

Here’s a fun one. A trackless mirror frame giving access to a utility closet and wing wall on the other end.
Waiting on mirror glass still but a big thank you to our collaborators @shayconstruction and @margueriterodgersinteriors for always providing us with fun problems to solve whether it be design, engineering or both!

A carbon steel mockup of a railing section for eighty lineal feet of handicap ramps. The final will be painted stainless to ensure decades and decades of permanence.
In spite of its simplicity, this is the result of over a year and a half of design development. It needed to be just right for its inclusion at an historic and well respected regional botanical garden.

A shortened post in steel to prove the tooling as I develop it.
Tongs, fullers, swages and open dies all tailored for the Massey for this specific job. It’s one of my favorite aspects of all our projects, design development.
The finished work will be in stainless steel with patina.
