3000 pound nuts (below). Cast by Frank Monaco, of Pyramid Stone, with white cement, limestone, and white sand, into a two piece plaster mold, produced by Battersby Ornamental. My first large job in the new millenium, these balls were produced in February 2000.
The image below was scanned from a Polaroid snapshot, taken in 1971. This billboard, on the outskirts of Waco, Texas, is a half scale replica of the downtown Citizen's National Bank. The replica is about twenty five feet wide, by twenty feet tall, and the bottom of our replica is about twenty feet above the ground. Our work is composed of metal lath, channel iron, cement, lime, and sand.
The image below was scanned from a Polaroid snapshot, taken in about 1990. This piece of work was commissioned by Dr. and Mrs. Growcock for their new family residence in Hill Country Village, Texas. Top to bottom is about four feet. It is positioned about thirty feet above the ground on the front gable of this home. This work is composed of metal lath, channel iron, cement, lime, and sand. It was copied from a three and a half inch drawing, on page XIV, of my copy of Franz Meyer's "Handbook Of Ornament". It was done on the table, in my shop, and then planted on the gable end at the Growcock Residence, and remains today, with a natural cement finish.
