Torch Sculpture Complete 

The Torch sculpture is finally complete. I have a meeting on Wednesday with a few people on location in Fort Langley to discuss the installation. This is going on the outside of Trinity Western House, a new collegium for students and the general public in Fort Langley in the old Bedford House Restaurant on Glover Road, across from the Fort Pub. The wood is Western Red Cedar, the frame is steel, painted to match the siding of the building. In spite of its size (the cedar is 3 inches thick!) as you can see by my lack of grimace or bulging veins, this is surprisingly light. 

Huge thanks go out to the fine people in the TWU Maintenance department. They volunteered to print the design, provide the steel, weld it up, and provide working space as well as tools and supplie. Paul Johnston and his great staff, people like Matt, Brad, Jan, Brenda, Maureen, Graham and others all helped me in some way. I kinda invaded their space and they made me feel welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and they made this project possible!
