This wallpiece began its life in sketches as a large X, the second of a pair of pieces experimenting with a square at the center and a bunch of finer detailed pieces appearing to thrust through it in two different directions. But I liked it better with just the one axis in this case, and kept it that way. The result is a piece that, when mounted vertically, reminds me of a cityscape, perhaps with a distorted reflection below, or of a futuristic arcology in the clouds with buildings and towers extending both up and down.
Like most of my wallpieces, this one can be mounted horizontally as well as vertically, and it is designed to look good that way, or vertically with either end up. I usually prefer it blunt-end up, but many viewers prefer it the other way. The choice is up to you.
The wallpiece is built from many thin-walled brass boxes folded from sheet, brazed at their corners, and patinaed with traditional sculptural patinas while heating the metal with a torch. The piece only weighs about 16 pounds and can be hung on any wall. You can use ordinary drywall anchors for normal walls. I can also provide special clips which make for a more secure installation.
