"Since 2000 I have been working on the development of sculptures with expressive motion as a starting point."

Floating Pyramides

2021-11-07 (V. van der Wijk)

The lasercutted stainless steel plates for the new balanced sculpture 'Floating Pyramids' have been delivered. Now it's time to put all pieces together as a large size puzzle, weld all the meters of edges, polish the surface, assemble the sculpture, and finally tune the balance. That will be my work for the next weeks until the opening of the Delft Highlight Festival on 18 November when the sculpture needs to be ready. This means indeed a lot of work in a short time... Extra motivation I obtained by receiving a grant for creative creators from the Municipality of Delft to develop this sculpture.

In these pictures you see the stainless steel bars (316L) for production of the axles and bearing houses by lathing.
