The Lucida piece was created by working within Central Park, onto which the building looks.
Our initial idea was to play with the linearity evident in the city of New York as one stands in Central Park and looks though the trees to the rising buildings behind.
The client who had commissioned this piece was keen that it should express the four seasons and we were blessed that over three days we got a glimpse of each in central park.
Our palette of metals was created based on the photos we captured of fallen leaves, of acorns trapped beneath ice,
the vivid green of laburnum and the way the sun bleached the trees as it reflected off the snow.
We developed a technique which enabled us to create a transition of metals fading from the cool of aluminium and adding varying tones of bronze to warm this up into spring,
bringing in brass for summer and copper to create reds into autumn.
