The Logan International Airport will soon come alive with an underwater scene straight out of the likes of “Finding Nemo”, and here’s the kicker: it’s all welded!
An ‘ocean’ for Logan
Essex metal artist crafts major piece for Boston airport
By Jonathan Phelps
ESSEX — Artist Chris Williams’ studio has been transformed into a coral reef complete with fish, seaweed and octopuses.
Williams, 41, who does metal artwork and operates Chris Williams Sculpture out of his garage on Rocky Hill Road, is currently creating the ocean scene using bronze, steel, and rocks for a project that will soon be on display at Logan International Airport.
The piece is scheduled to be installed in early March and should be there for at least six months, Williams said.
The project was initiated by Williams as a way to advertise his work and to interact with people from all over the world who may pass by the sculpture while in the terminal.
“People see a piece and they call,” said Williams, who has done other projects like this in the past. “To make a living doing this, you have to get your work out there.”
