Wilderness Reflections sign at Crown Center

Here is the latest sign project from Fossil Forge. This sign is located at Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo. The sign is a combination of elements. The letters are cut from 1/8 inch steel and mounted with a small offset to create better shadows and depth. On the left side is a sculptural grouping of cattails. These are made from a variety of steel, handforged, twisted and shaped. The letters and cattails were treated with a rust solution and heated. This helps create some interesting colors. The wolf head cutout is a retail item added to the sign. Wilderness Reflections is on the second floor of the shopping center.

The cattails were a challenging element to add to the sign, but my favorite part of this project. They had to attach to the existing sign box and frame.
