Client: Darrel Pitt

Project: Meteorite Pedestals

Our Role: Fabrication

Description: New Project was approached by collector Darrel Pitt for a solution to display his beautiful collection of authentic meteorites. Each meteorite poses it’s own unique set of challenges. Perhaps the most pressing challenge of all is the sheer weight of the objects, so weighed in at over 1,500 lbs. The client wanted the meteorites to be accessible, and untouched as much as possible. Our experience as makers and our knowledge of artifact mounting helped us step in and create stunning pedestals. From a design perspective, we attempted to make the meteorites look as if they were floating, placing the majority of the weights of the objects onto steel cradles that extended down through the pedestal and were welded to the base plate.
