1st visit to concrete, 12-16-2010
San was summoned to view the 9/11 concrete pieces prior to sculpting them in December of 2010, where the blocks were stored on land of an abandoned concrete mine just outside of NYC. This photo is San standing on top of the original Echo 11 sculpture, in its raw state before completion in 2014.

Echo 11 before cutting and polishing
San standing by Echo 11 as it sat in the New York area before being shipped to Florida and now worked on into a completed and polished sculpture.
This Available Sculpture as the most significant of the collection with a Metal Tieback embedded in it that you can see in the wall exposed at the 911 Memorial in New York City.
Available: Memorial table bench
This 9/11 table bench has the top made out of the slurry wall concrete from this project and the bottom was designed to support the weight of the concrete top. It is made out of highly polished stainless steel to reflect the under side showing the rebar in the concrete.
This sculpture called Triad11, is from a cut off section of the first sculpture now placed in Bethlehem, PA called Victorii Rebuild.
It is approximately 28" tall and weighs a couple hundred pounds. San has inlaid 24K gold leafing on the side to add to the beauty of the piece.
Available: Peacetime 11, Sundial
This sculpture has an area that can be used like a Roman Sundial. As soon as it gets placed in its permanent location, San the Artiste will sculpt out the lines in that area to be able to delineate the time of day. It will have to be set in a certain position to do that on site. A stainless steel arm will be resting just above to cast the shadow from the sun.
Sans grandchildren and Kay Krapf's have given San the idea to make this sculpture called Joy11. It has several different drawings of the children, now engraved by San, onto the concrete. This is a special sculpture dedicated to the children lost and the children left behind from 9/11. San sees this as a joyful message to remember all innocent children by memorializing their drawings in the stone, using oil paints to resemble crayons as ancient, prehistoric petroglyphs.
Available: Barney11 Water Sculpture
Barney11, is named after Sans childhood dog named Barney. This sculpture has several pipes going through it, making it a perfect fountain sculpture. It is dedicated to all the rescue dogs in the world. San wants it in the middle of a fountain, with a low border, which allows dog owners to bring their pets up to drink from the water surrounding this centerpiece.

Sculpture sealing process
This photo shows the dramatic difference in the way the concretes aggregate stones show up their beauty once each sculpture is polished and sealed.
San has taken thousands of photos from all around the United States related to 911. This is very much reminiscent of the North and South towers.
This closeup photo shows the two types of concrete on many of the sculptures. The darker grey is the heavy concrete slurry with lots of aggregate stones and the lighter tan area is called Bentonite slurry, used to first pour into the channels to seal up the outside and then the heavier slurry is poured and sets up.
Blocks moved to Florida Art Studio
Flatbed Semi Trucks are used to move all of the sculptural pieces. Most weigh 16,000 lbs. each
