Warren Carther Winnipeg Airport Sculpture Installation, Sept 27 2011

“Aperture”

a glass sculpture by Warren Carther commissioned for the new

Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson Airport

How to describe it:

It’s a carved and sandblasted blue glass sculpture lit from beneath and within by coloured LEDs.

When approaching it from the security check in, where all passengers pass through,

the aperture created by the piece frames the prairie landscape seen through the windows of the departure lounge.

Quite lovely.

This was the day most of the blocks were assembled. Tough one.

With the lights on the glass glows.

 

With the lights off the glass looks opaque

Windex. Very helpful stuff

 

 

5 tons of glass hanging above 5 tons of glass. Everyone was very clenched.

 

 

 

Loctite Hysol E-30CL epoxy resin. Tough stuff!

 

 

 

The piece had to be perfectly level when lowering down to touch the bottom half, otherwise glass splinters might fly.

 

 

 

 

Looks good!
