The Mirabella Umbrellas

Stainless Steel, Aluminum

Robert H. Foster

Foster's creations have been in bronze & ceramics over the last dozen years. This is the first attempt to use stainless steel in an architectural context. All elements of both sculptures were designed and then drawn by Foster electronically in 3D Autocad. Each sculptural element was then laser cut directly from the vector based electronic files. Each piece was hand welded into position and finished at the metal fabrication shop, Trovo Design, in NW Portland under the supervision of Bob Foster. Installation was by Turner Construction Co., Seattle, Wa.
