- Standing 30’ tall and 12’ wide, Beacon Bloom is situated in the center of a roundabout in Carmel, IN “signaling the presence of the roundabout with a welcoming expression of hope and growth,” says artist Arlon Bayliss.
- Arlon approached bo-mar early in his process with conceptual drawings. bo-mar’s fabricators and engineers worked directly with the artist to develop his concept into a buildable piece of art with realistic scheduling and budgetary information.
- Florets were created and preassembled into clusters in bo-mar’s shop, complete with electrical wiring. The dichroic glass was cut on our waterjet to maximize yield and installed into each floret by bo-mar’s talented assembly department before being crated for transport to site. Once onsite, bo-mar’s field team finished out the project with full installation of the sculpture.
- Each metal stem is comprised of 16 clusters, each containing 16 florets. Each floret contains an LED light covered in dichroic glass, subtly changing the color of each white LED.
“Bo-mar has become much more than simply a metal fabricator for us. They are truly a trusted resource that we count on for insights and execution.”Ken Boyce Ratio Architects
