Steve Rumore's newest tribute to the wind, Updraft.
Watching the gentle motion is always a relaxing experience as Updraft rides the breeze.
This is a steel kinetic piece, moved by the breeze. It is perfectly balanced and has a 360 range of motion and always points downwind. This finish is natural steel. If sealed the grey and black scale remains. If unsealed the deep orange rust is stunning, too.
Types & Prices:
Price on enquiry. Various sizes and finishes available, pricing commensurate. 0.5 metre to 3 metre wingspan.
Mounting Base Options
1. Corten Cylindrical Plinth, This mounting plinth measures 700mm high by 300mm diameter. It has the same matching 6 bolt pattern as the Updraft post, which makes mounting simple: dig a hole, drop in the cylinder, level it and pour Quickset cement (self sourced) around the bottom and inside. After the concrete has set, bolt on the Updraft post with the chrome nuts provided.
Plinth Pricing $450.00 GST inclusive, freight exclusive
2. Free Standing Mounting Base, This base allows easy set-up of Updraft and offers the benefit of mobility. It can be useful for temporary installations or for those situations where its final position has yet to be determined. It can also be staked for a more permanent installation. Stakes (sold separately) are highly recommended in windy locations. Mounting Base pricing $45.00 GST inclusive, freight exclusive.
Updraft sculptures are intended to rust naturally; however, they can be sealed to preserve the grey/black steel colouring in various combinations; post, balancing arm and/or Hawk. Sealing requires maintenance similar to any painted surface., so plan to re-seal each 12-24 months, depending upon the sculpture proximity to the sea.
We also can fabricate all or part of Updraft in stainless steel. Stainless steel is a wonderfully striking contrast to a rusted steel finish. We can also craft this entire piece in stainless steel for an ultra modern, sleek appearance. Please contact us to price these options
