Andy’s masterpiece.  Lovely and well crafted.


I have VISITORS!  This is my first Thanksgiving in NY and my family came to see me!  I think it has been a great success so far.  We saw the Rockettes, the Parade, and the tree!

Nailed it?  Yep.

We caught a glimpse of the marathon as it passed through the neighborhood.

We’ve been drawing and making a lot since May.  Mostly for Ralph Lauren.  A stair, a waterwall, shutters and a few other things.  About 15 pieces in total.  Here are a few pictures of how things get done in Brooklyn.

Testing the water flow.

Bronze blackener poured over muntz bronze.  Very beautiful.  A few passes with the bucket, scotch brite, and more blackener result in a nice, even oxidation.

Attach panels to steel structure and turn it on!

Add surround cladding substrate.  Carefully calculated bronze plate is fastened on top.

First thing I ever drew that was then built!  This stair and water wall were installed in the Starrett-Lehigh Building for the Ralph Lauren Home collection.  On the way to the showroom we passed the DS+R offices which are on the same floor.
