This, Pat's first large-scale sculpture, was commissioned by Westfield University Town Center as part of the redesign of the mall.
This piece was created from a single 10-foot by 3-foot sheet of copper using a method called Foldforming, an origami-like process moving metal into dramatic shapes.
After folding the copper in half, Pat used traditional hammers and anvil as well as a power hammer, creating texture and moving the copper into the curves of the wave-like sculpture.
Once he had the general shape, he unfolded the copper using a variety of tools. And finally, multiple layers of blue and green patinas were applied giving the piece a water-like look.
