I recently completed a stainless steel kinetic sculpture for the new Towbin Motorcars Showroom in Las Vegas. The piece “Reflection”, was commissioned by Carolyn Towbin, in honor of her husband, the late Daniel Towbin, founder of Towbin Automotive and symbolized his community involvement, patriotism and love of horses.
I created the sculpture in my studio in Seattle and drove it down to Las Vegas for installation at the new Towbin Motorcars Showroom. I was honored to attend the grand opening celebration of the new showroom, where the Towbin Family unveiled the sculpture.

The Towbin family, including Carolynn Towbin, president, owner and CEO of Towbin Automotive Enterprises; Jesika Towbin, co-owner of Towbin Motorcars; and Josh “Chop” Towbin were all in attendance. The only dealership in Las Vegas to offer Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce, Towbin Motorcars revealed the latest lines of luxury automobiles at the gala.
Unveiled at the celebration was the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish as well as the latest line of Rolls Royce Phantoms. The Bentley Continental GT Speed, the fastest Bentley ever built, was also on display. Towbin Motorcars is one of just two dealerships in the country to have this model.
Christophe Georges, president and COO of Bentley Motors, David Archibald, president of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North American and Seth Geeslin, operations manager of Aston Martin North America all spoke at the event and thanked the Towbin family for the partnership. Georges also presented the Towbin family with a plaque on behalf of Bentley Motors.
Towbin Motorcars is the first automobile dealership in the country with its own “bliss room,” a relaxation area with dim lighting, large seats for meditation and a Buddha for current and new clients.
At the ceremony, the Towbin family unveiled a sculpture by artist Troy Pillow in honor of the late Daniel Towbin, the founder of Towbin Automotive. His wife and family also announced the development of the Daniel Towbin Fund and a $25,000 donation to Three Square food bank. The dealership also donated a portion of all car sales from the event to Three Square and will continue contributions with each car sold throughout the month of October.
For over a decade, I have been creating unique sculptures that capture attention and engage the imagination through simple design and kinetic movement.
