Cathedral
(Tebeau's Tulip)

This 6-legged structure supports 6 airy fins that come together to appear as a vessel form. A hand crank at the bottom of the structure allows visitors to cause the vessel to open and close, like a giant mechanical flower blooming. Commissioned by the Oregon Arts Commission for Tebeau Hall at Oregon State University.
