What is The City Series?
The City Series is a collection of wood sculptures that represent a woodworker's journey from the suburbs to the city. Each piece depicts the outsider's perspective of the urban landscape. Made entirely of scrap wood, this work is an interpretation of making something out of nothing. Each piece is cut intuitively on a band saw. The result is a collection of architectural forms, each distinctly different from the next.
What's next for The City Series?
We are amazed by the overwhelming amount of positive feedback we've received lately, and its time for us to begin making the next generation of pieces for this collection.
We've chosen Kickstarter to announce that we're breaking ground on the next chapter of the City Series, and to ask our supporters to help make it possible. It is our goal to double the size of the collection with new and improved city inspired sculptures by the end of 2013. We are also seeking venues to exhibit the entire collection in major Metropolitan areas like New York and Philadelphia.
We are currently stock piling scrap wood from various locations, but the cost of making this work is still very expensive. The new designs will require new equipment and a plentiful inventory of supplies. When we find a venue to exhibit this work, we will need funding to make pedestals, shipping crates, and promotional materials.
Become part of the City Series Expansion
In exchange for your support, you will receive your own piece of the city. I'm prepared to make unique collections of custom band saw cut buildings for all my supporters. These scrap wood cities are an exclusive offer, and not available anywhere except here at Kickstarter.
In addition, we will recognize all of our supporters on a special page of McNabb & Co. Studio's website.
Update 1: New Rewards!
Don't have the table space for a collection of city buildings?
Say hello to ThinWrap City Prints.
These beautifully mounted and finished prints are produced using Lustre Paper and then over-laminated with a soft satin laminate. The resulting product is then mounted on high-quality board and adhered with a 1/2" spacer, which allows the image to be hung and appear to float from the wall-no frame needed. Limited quantities, available in two chic choices:
Risks and challenges
The major risks involved in this project is keeping my fingers away from the band saw blade. Its seems obvious, but after 1000 or so buildings, i need a reminder.
The major challenge of this project is the amount of patience, dedication and attention to detail it requires to generate the pieces that make the City Series. I am excited about this project, and even more excited that my supporters will be able to have their own unique collections.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
