The domes have been cast and are looking great!
Remember they will be lit with solar lighting for beautiful night time imagery all the while holding and displaying the beautiful artworks of created by Britta Gudd and Andrea Fisher.
Lucas’s work is yet to be installed due to some minor weather issues (looks like the end of this week for installation) but in the meantime, here is some of the very talented Rodney Monks work on the project.
In conjunction with the ever talented Artist / Designer – Russell Anderson, Lucas Salton Design have been awarded Stage 3 of the Noosa Junction Public Art and Streetscaping Project.
For those of you that follow our blog, you’ll remember Lucas presented concepts to Council toward the end of last year: which have been well received
This is a major project which is also an amazing opportunity. 2012 is shaping up to be a very, very good year!
Below is the sculpture that will utilise the bronze turtle components as shown last week for a Public Art Project Lucas Salton Design is working on. This piece still needs specialised coatings which should occur this week – weather permitting. This means installation may occur next week and we won’t have to keep up the secrecy anymore :-/
While we’re waiting for footage from New Years Eve on Darling Harbour that Lucas spent with Steve Langton of Pyrophone Juggernaut fame, we thought we’d share with you this very cool footage taken previously.
Because of Intellectual Property agreements and contractural obligations, I can’t give too much away just yet concerning this project. Other than saying installation should occur in the next 4 weeks and once that happens we can post more images and information.
I CAN show you an image of something that will be incorporated into the project though
11 of these beautiful cast bronze turtles which we’ve just had fabricated….
Happy New Year!
A month or so before New Years Eve, Lucas was approached by an old friend – Steve Langton - of Hubbub Music to help with something pretty special on New Years Eve in Sydney Harbour. Sound, fire and percussion performance on the mind blowing Pyrophone Juggernaut.
Based on a 250 year old experimental musical instrument, Hubbub Music’s ‘Pyrophone Juggernaut’ is the largest hand operated multi-octave fire organ in the world. The organ is 10m tall and made from recycled car parts.
And Lucas was fortunate enough to be a part of the performance once before in Brisbane some years back, and again, New Years just been, on Sydney Harbour.
Below are some images of the process involved to set up and of course, from the event. Footage with sound will be coming in the next few days so check back often.
I wanted to share with you some of the highlights of 2011 for Lucas Salton Design. This seemed like a fairly simple idea to begin with…. It wasn’t until reviewing images and projects that I realised just how busy the year has been! And fortunately it looks like it will continue well into 2012. Somewhere in amongst the below Projects, Lucas Salton Design also managed to create 84 glass sculptures for Furn-Niche Interiors, were selected for the Project Proposal Stage for Maroochydore Art Plan, were nominated as finalists in the ‘Greening the Arts’ category for the Sunshine Coast Glossie Awards, were selected to review the Sunshine Coast Draft Public Art Policy and Guidelines for Council and are still working on Bundaberg Public Art for Qld Rail…. We are looking forward to some downtime over Christmas / New Year and will be closing between December 22nd and January 3rd for a short break to recharge, find new inspiration and prepare for what looks to be a huge year for Lucas Salton Design in 2012.
