Fine Art in Solid Surface
Designed and Carved by Becki Babb ~ Painted by Todd A. Babb
The Dolphin Pedestal Sink Base was first a shared idea of creating a Solid Surface Dolphin with a Wave Base to hold a Clear Glass Kohler Vessel Sink. The Idea turned into a Drawing. Sizes were agreed on.
A Mock Up of the Dolphin was Created and Carved in Medium Density Fiber Board to work out the details and make adjustments before the carving began in Solid Surface.
An armature was made of steel by a talented metal smith to help support the sculpture.
The Dolphin and Wave began by Stacking, Laminating and Shaping
Waves were added to the top of the Kohler Spun Glass Bowl to
hold a Glass Soap Dispenser. The Wave Curls were designed to hold Hand
Todd A. Babb added his magic of color and it was time to transport "Baby" to its new home on Little Gasparilla Island!
The sculpture was transported first by truck with Byron at the
wheel, the contractor Bruce transported us by his barge type boat, the sculpture, weighing an estimated three
to four hundred
pounds, was then hand carried up nineteen feet
of stairs by Byron and the builder to finally be placed in its new home!
Final adjustments were made for the plumbing fixtures the install is complete!!
Many Thanks to Ron and Jan for thinking "Outside
the Box" and making this Sculpture possible!!
