Echo Two Stainless Steel Sculpture by artist Tim Forbes


Fabrication Highlights:

• Stainless steel construction
• Hand-tooled to achieve desired finish
* Pointed-up from maquette

Tim Forbes’ latest work in his Echo series of stainless steel sculpture entitled “Echo Two” lords majestically against the backdrop of the city.  Sitting atop a waist-high plinth, the 36-inch sculpture engages the observer to interact on a personal level.


The origin of the piece was an eight-inch soft metal maquette hand-bent by artist Tim Forbes.  Working from Tim’s design, Great Lakes Scenic Studios mapped out a scale for the enlarged piece and proceeded to cut and bend sections to make the component pieces of the sculpture. Next, the component pieces were welded together to form the basic sculpture. Finally, the piece was hand-tooled to achieve the desired finish.A keen artistic eye was needed to ensure that the piece was an accurate enlargement of the original, capturing the essence of the artist’s lines and intent. Ongoing communication between the artist and the fabrication team ensured that the translation from maquette to finished sculpture was exactly as the artist had intended.If you would like more information on this project or would like to discuss your next project with us, please connect with us here: This email address is being protected from spambots.

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
