Bruce Gray Sculpture Follow-up

Here is a follow-up to a post on an Outdoor sculpture we were working on in the spring. The sculpture, by Los Angeles artist Bruce Gray, is stainless steel with magnetically suspended cables. We mounted the sculpture onto a basalt pillar for a striking garden accent. Here is a full description:

This is a
stainless outdoor version of “Suspension.” It is made all in stainless
steel, and the magnets on the frame and cords are bolted through for
permanent bonding. Those are high powered industrial rare earth
neodymium iron boron magnets on the ends of the cords, and also on the
frame of the circle, to hold the magnets in place by magnetic force
alone. This version has a solid stainless rod on the bottom to be
mounted into a chuck of basalt rock that has been acquired by the
client. (24″ x 24″ x 3″ plus 5″ mounting rod)
