Wrigley Memorial | Avalon, Catalina Island, CA | 2000
For the Wrigley Memorial, we scanned photos of Phillip and William Wrigley for the Catalina Conservancy, and worked closely with Allison Wrigley to accurately capture the expressions of Phillip and William. We were able to create these low-relief sculptures by utilizing a 3D mapping and bit cloud surfacing process. Once the face sculptures were complete, we designed the pillar posts using Catalina tile art—the same art that can be found throughout the City of Avalon. The bronze was machined to the same scale as the tile art. Each individual bronze was hand TIG welded and hand finished to mimic the look of solid cast pillars.

The piece is located in the front entrance of the Wrigley Memorial in the City of Avalon on Catalina Island.
