Industrial Chimes from Crane
Wood, Steel and Copper 15’ ht
River Walk at Water Street and St. Paul Avenue
Historic Third Ward
Milwaukee, WI
2012

Cranes have been a common sight in the skyline of the third ward as redevelopment precedes reuse. As art and industrial design blend here I could see no better use for the crane as a giant cantilever. The heavy steel piece is precisely balanced. Copper paddles catch a gentle breeze and it moves freely. The bells ring and the copper fins softly rumble.

 

 

 

 

Industrial Chimes on Post

Historic Third Ward
Milwaukee, WI
2004

Inspired by the arts and crafts and early industrial design, the wind chime previously hung from a curved cedar cantilevered post.
