I was commissioned to enclose fourteen six inch steel bearing columns and create and old world style. I made these enclosure by cutting twelve individual ribs splining both sides, fluting out the centers and istalling them around the steel columns. Then I created the capital tops in a leafy design made them in two halves, along with the bases. After the entire coloumn was joined I then made a heavy cement slurry, coated the entire coloumn and imbedded mesh. I then recoated, and covered with a sand mixture, and colored. The owner was very pleased, which led into many more projects, as you can see part of a fireplace surround in the background.
