Working with our stone fabricator - Mauro Marmi snc. in Pietrasanta, LU Italy!

Here you can see John buying some rock in a stone yard, then being cut up to a desired size to have it then put under the CNC machine. In a few days the sculpture was "roughed out" for John to finish it by hand. For John it is the first time to try this approach. It takes time to cut down the rock in order to make sure there are no flaws in the block, then a few days on the machine. With this approach you could make editions, like in Bronze casting. John is finishing it now.... more images to come!

Award of Merit: Public Places and Civic Spaces for the  Canadian Building Trades Monument

The Canadian Building Trades Monument is a permanent public art installation located on a 100m² site in Major’s Hill Park, Ottawa, ON. The monument honours and celebrates the men and women who build Canada every day and commemorates the losses they have endured in the workplace. It was unveiled on May 16, 2017 by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The monument consists of a public plaza, sculptural and topographical elements, engraved benches, lighting and a commemorative plaque. Its most prominent feature is a pair of oversized plumb bobs made of Cambrian black granite and mounted on stainless steel pins. Plumb bobs have been used as tools in construction projects since ancient times and here they symbolize the intersection of earthly gravity and human ingenuity.

Jury Comments

The elegant shape used in the installation is human scaled and is like a tool. The project is thoughtfully detailed, contemporary and provides simplicity of a special idea that is open to interpretation. It creates a destination along a key route.
