    Schmidt’s intention is to create atmospheric sculptures with smooth lines in fluid movement designed to be reflective invoking the viewer's imagination for inspiration of great healing and thoughtfulness. To achieve the mirror-finish on the sculpture, while labor intensive, ensures the reflective surface will withstand both external and internal elements. It also help enhance the implied motion of the sculpture forms catching the sun, clouds and movement around them, while inspiring the viewer with new discoveries every day.


If placing the sculpture outdoor, maintenance will be minimal since the materials for this piece are resistant to harmful elements. The mirror-polish finish allows elegant reflection of the stainless steel to look completely natural while being protected from those elements. The sculpture should be cleaned periodically as needed. To remove dirt and maintain the mirror-finish, use windex with a microfiber soft cloth. No steel wool, no Ajax abrasive powder, chemicals, or abrasives of any kind. Carnuaba wax can be applied once a year. The Artist will include one set of cleaning kit with purchase of sculpture. You may also email for other inquiries or placement ideas of sculpture.
