"Rebirth" is a modern sculpture I was commissioned to design and construct for the local Florida law firm FGBO.

I've always been drawn to the art of ensō which is a Japanese tradition of drawing circles in one to two uninhibited strokes. I find circles to be symbolic of many things; movement, change, energy, completion, renewal, and rebirth. Rebirth will always hold a special place in my heart as my mother passed away the day it was finished.

Below is a comprehensive list of all the tools and products I used in this project.
