So, things are a tiny bit slow here, but we are moving along just fine.
Here are some images of a private commission we just did. These sunflowers were commissioned by a gentleman for his wife, for their anniversary. The TORK crew went out and did the install while the they were away, so it would be a surprise for her. He called us to say that she loved them and that they brought tears to her eyes. We were happy to have been able to help him make such a wonderful gesture of love. We also gave them a disc of photos that documented the process, start to finish, of the sunflowers being fabricated.
The heads were cast in resin, and the stalks and leaves were fabricated by Mark and his assistant, they are powder coated a translucent green.

Yes, the bee is made of resin. It was sculpted and hand painted by Tony Ball
The shots of the bee were taken at the shop on one of the junk casts of the seed pod.
