Wrigley Memorial | Avalon, Catalina Island, CA | 2000

We scanned photos of Phillip and William Wrigley for the Catalina Conservancy. We worked with Allison Wrigley to get the expressions of Phillip and William exact. We created the low relief sculptures by 3D mapping and bit cloud surfacing. Once the face sculptures were complete, we designed the pillar posts using the Catalina tile art, which has covered the city of Avalon CA. The bronze was machined in scale of the tile art. The individual bronze was hand TIG welded and hand finished to create a look of solid casted pillars. The piece in located in the front entranced of the Wrigley Memorial in Catalina CA. City of Avalon. Designed and built by Patrick Vogel.
