including sculpture hanging on the
wall or from the ceiling. Wall and ceiling installations are often
the most difficult because they involve architects, engineers, and

Harry has met and worked with many fine sculptors in the past 15
years and these associations have naturally led to recommendations
of certain artists to certain venues. This development has grown
into an extension of the installations business and continues to

a sculpture "walk" at the train station in Trenton, NJ.

needed, Harry will either do the work in-house or specify and oversee
work at an appropriate shop that he will recommend.
Harry was asked to model, mold and cast in bronze a 6' fireman carrying

"I would have to rethink how I would do the sculpture
component of the Convergence International Arts Festival
here in Providence if I had to do it without the assistance
of Harry Gordon.
Harry is the utmost professional, always on-time, works
harder than any installer I've ever worked with and
somehow manages to do it with ease and grace.
He treats each and every work as if it were priceless.
Harry even manages to "chill out" the most
uptight sculptors... Harry is second to none!"
