Art in Public Places Geode

The glass castings we produced for Austin artist Hunter Cross were encased in a custom metal frame, then surrounded with this organic gunite form. However the surface was darker and rougher than what was envisioned. We proceeded to formulate a custom concrete mix that could not only achieve the desired color, but also fill in surface […]

Austin Trail of Lights Toy Factory

We were asked by the Trail of Lights Foundation to breathe new life into their classic Toy Factory display. While it has always been very fun and whimsical, the color palette was rather bland. We repainted the walls in an ice blue, and added snow drifts throughout. The spinning gears were given bright and graphic […]

Giant Book

We were contacted by the Corpus Christi Bay Area Fellowship to fabricate a giant 14′ tall by 30′ open book for their Once Upon a Christmas play. However we had just over two weeks to build it, and it all had to break down to fit into a semi truck for transport. The book was […]

Austin Trail of Lights Plinko Board

For the interior activations of the Candyland tent, we created this 7′ tall Plinko board. Crafted out of MDO sign board, vinyl graphics, and composite gears, this giant board delivers candy with a twist. Volunteers pour candy in the top shoot, that then bounces off of spinning gears and slides into a trough at the […]

Austin Trail of Lights Jack-A-Lope

We had a unique restoration opportunity for the Austin Trail of Lights. This 20′ tall Jack-A-Lope was commissioned for the trail in 2013, but was never fully realized and poorly executed. The sculpture was too skinny in spots, and too bulky in others. The feet were hastily cut off since it could not fit out […]

Austin Trail of Lights Candyland

We were asked by the Austin Trail of Lights Foundation to help them realize a brand new activation for the 50th anniversary of the event. The idea was to create a giant gingerbread house that housed candy making and exciting candy machines to give out free candy for visitors. This concept was created by fabricating a […]

Austin Trail of Lights Santa-Saurus

This was our first job working for the Austin Trail of Lights. The Foundation came to us looking for help restoring their beloved Santa-Saurus. While no one really knows how old it is, our best guess and fuzzy memories put it anywhere between 20 to 30 years olds. And the age was starting to show. […]

Austin Trail of Lights Candy Machine

For candy delivery inside Candyland, we came up with this fun candy machine! The “machine” is really just a dressed up candy slide, but it draws you in with its bright paint scheme and many pipes, hoses, and lights. We came up with a custom soundtrack of mechanical noises that played on internal speakers, and […]

Austin Trail of LIghts Candyland Interior

To complete the Trail of Lights Candyland experience, we designed and fabricated an immersive, interactive experience. After walking through the gingerbread portal, guests are treated with free candy samples from both the Plinko board and the Candy machine. We built an 8′ tall display tree complete with a rotating candy sign and hidden storage in […]
