"Galvanizing is crucial to every large-scale sculpture I make, and I could not display these sculptures outside without galvanizing. Hot-dip galvanizing every piece of my sculptures ensures that the underlying steel will remain corrosion free and protect them to last well beyond my lifetime!" -Jack Howard Potter
The Dancer 12 Statue was designed to fit in the galvanizing kettle. The statue was made specifically for the hot-dip galvanizing process and in keeping the size, warping and draining all in mind for an outstanding galvanizing and powder coating finish.
Howard-Potter uses his knowledge of human anatomy and skills as a metal worker to create large scale figurative sculptures. The goal is to take steel, a rigid hard material, and give it a sense of movement and fluidity. His sculpture, Gendron, is coated in a hard red powder coating finish. The artist likes to use bright colors to make his work stand out from the landscape. The galvanizer has been working with Jack Howard-Potter for years and he loves the look, durability and corrosion performance of the hot-dip galvanizing.
