Artists - Roger Heitzman
StrataSphere goes beyond the typical wind sculpture. It is a complex design that has the feeling of a gyroscope and brings to one`s imagination visions of Galileo at his workbench. Roger Heitzman is an alchemist as he blends his architectural expertise with his well-developed artistic sensibility.
Standing before StrataSphere , one becomes mesmerized by the multidirectional facets. Made of copper and brass, the gentle breezes flow into the wind-capturing vessels. The entire experience is soothing, calming and yet it exudes energy.
Helix appears to be moving upwards at all times. It is like autumn leaves ascending in a whirlwind. The copper leaves in the wind sculpture harken back to nature and bring one to a place of peace.
