Cannonball!

Private Commission 2012

Designed as a pool-side sculpture, this life-sized piece was inspired by the customer’s grandchildren.  It was an interesting and challenging piece to make, in that the entire piece is supported by 3 small points of attachment, and that the grandchildren were in fact younger in age than their likenesses at the time, involving trying to age the faces appropriately.

UW Nobel Laureate Wall

In 2007 the University of Washington dedicated an honor wall in recognition of outstanding faculty achievement.  Magrath Sculpture was commissioned to make bas relief portraits of the six faculty members who had won the Nobel Prize. As this project was on a very tight deadline, I called in Heidi Wastweet, of Wastweet Studios  and we split the portraits in order complete this on time.  Woodwork and general contracting by William Walker Woodworking.    The project was designed by Mithun Architecture
Special thanks also to Steve Anderson and Vicking Fire Foundry for their herioc efforts in casting this project.
