The University of Cincinnati commissioned me to sculpt this bas-relief of their former faculty member, Neil Armstrong, for the entrance to Rhodes Hall.  The composition is inspired by a photo of him sitting in some bleachers while working on a paper airplane (he would use them in his aerodynamics classes).  I set the hands on his watch to the time he stepped on the moon.
