Dee Briggs Sculptures
The Sculptures by the artist Dee Briggs are located on a scenic beachfront property in New York. Knippers Helbig worked with the artist to develop the structural concept and fabrication strategy for the two sculptures. One sculpture is a lively composition of three connected steel rings fabricated from square tubes. The other sculpture consists of a carefully grouped collection of three thick steel plates rolled to create surface curvature. Cor-ten steel was chosen for the sculpture. This material naturally develops a protective coating of rust that guards the steel from the corrosive seaside atmosphere.
