When we say our projects are one-of-a-kind, we mean it. As custom metal fabricators, when one of our customers has a taste for something special, we toss around ideas until we concoct something that hits the spot perfectly. The latest fruit of our labor was cooked up for the Poe Center for Health Education in Raleigh, NC, an example of how our work can tempt you to eat right and exercise.
Cook Together. The Poe Center helps to educate and empower NC youth through health education. We first worked with them around five years ago, helping to dress their facilities with artwork relevant to their mission. Last year we worked with the organization for the second time, installing two giant forks and 3D fruits and vegetables around their center.
Drink More. When we were called upon again this year, one of our projects was “Big Salad.” This large 3D public sculpture includes cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, lettuce, and carrots, placed on top of a large purple flower pot. We also created water flowing freely from a large silver cup, “Big Water”.
Enter Here. In addition to the big salad, we speared blueberries, carrots and strawberries with large forks to make a delicious entrance to their facility. A large wooden “Big Spoon” also adds to the healthy eating mix. All through the Poe Center you’ll find Seymour Poe, the “lean, green healthy mascot machine”. With his chef’s hat and spoon, he’s now outside, too, inviting you to “come and get it!”
Move More. A third ingredient of the outdoor wall art, “move more”, showcases a realistic looking bike encouraging physical movement and exercise. As you walk around the area you can also find a welcoming archway announcing “PlayWell Park”. PlayWell Park is a 1.5 acre health education playground which promotes children to blend learning and fun. As you exit the park a colorful archway reminds you that “Seymour Says Stay Healthy. Stay Safe”.
From small yard art to large customized salads, we pride ourselves on catering to whatever our customers are craving. We would love to prepare a delectable creation for you. Contact us today and place your order!
