Moto Ohtake, "Airborne 2009" ,Stockton, CA

One of the project types that RCR does best is artist assistance. We offered assistance to Moto Ohtake of Santa Cruz, CA. Our abrasive-waterjet cutting capabilities allowed us to precisely cut many of the elements in this awesome kinetic sculpture. Most notably, the base, gussets, and bearing housing parts. The base is 36" across and 1" thick! We cut all the bolt-holes and were even able to etch the title and artist's name into the base from a drawing submitted by Moto Ohtake. Welding and construction of the two giant rings and the 8" diameter stainless steel post was handled by our own Miguel Cervantes and crew. We were proud to help Moto's vision come to life! Why can't we have one in Santa Cruz? Please check out more of Moto's mind-blowing sculpture designs at www.motoohtake.com
