A little quick surgery
Today, it was all about welding up thousands of feet of pencil rod, carefully forming up the tree and globe armatures. In photographs it is extremely hard to see the result as it is very much like a wire render in a computer program - largely see through and yet defining exactly what is to come. We finished the bulk of the tree and then stood back to carefully analyze the result. It appeared a little bulky in a couple of areas compared to the concept design. This meant a little surgery was in order. We pared back the offending sections and then welded in some new rods to better fulfill the vision. By noon tomorrow the wiring will begin and soon after the sculpted concrete will follow.
