Museum-Quality Art Fabrication for Sculpture
I fabricated 2 custom-designed pedestals for the sculpture of Michael Singer.
These have appeared in exhibitions in Aalborg, Denmark and Copenhagen. They currently are on exhibit in the artist’s gallery in southern Vermont.
Both pedestals together took a total of 2 weeks to construct.
The exhibition in Aalborg was entitled “Michael Singer Projects in Art, Design and Environmental Regeneration.” The opening of this exhibition was on June 7, 2011 at the Utzon Center. It was a large solo exhibition of sculpture, drawings and architectural projects highlighting the artist’s collaboration with engineers, biologists, social historians and anthropologists.

This exhibition went on to the Danish Architecture Center in Copenhagen.
They are constructed of 3/4″ birch plywood with all edges mitered. The artists specified that no coating would be applied to the surface so all edges were glued to prevent the splintering of the delicate edges and corners. The surfaces were lightly hand-sanded.
