I recently made a trip to Northern California to install some new work on the beautiful grounds of Auberge du Soleil Resort & Spa in the heart of Napa Valley. Here is a short video of one of the sculptures.
These sculptures were placed through Aerena Galleries
I also installed a sculpture in the town of Yountville for the town's Art Walk program featuring over 40 outdoor sculptures.
This week I completed a new kinetic sculpture, Inline. Fabricated from stainless steel it it incorporates six different pivot points that create a complex kinetic movement with a constant rhythmic flow. Inline is available for purchase at the studio. Contact me for more information.
The Creative Space-Time Continuum: Photo-Essay (Part 4): Histories and Futures Inside the Rainier Oven Building
ARCADE magazine published a 4 part winter 2015 feature "The Creative Space-Time Continuum: Histories and Futures Inside the Rainier Oven Building." A photo-essay of the project, with words from the tenants, was published in the magazine and also in installments online. Previously published were Erin Langner's essay on the studios, part 2 of the feature and part 3 of the feature with Peter de Lory's photo-essay and words from the studio tenants. The final portion of the photo-essay (Part 4) features Troy & Troy Pillow Studios, as well as SHED, Bremelo Press, Fixture, Atelier Vert & Nobel Neon.

I have been working all winter to fill up the sculpture garden. Spring is here and the gallery is open by appointment. Give me a call at 206 658-7666 to set up a time to come by.
"Cedars" 7'x3'x2'- corten steel and cedar logs
The sculpture has been transformed from it's previous incarnation. The corten has been etched and started to develop it's patina. The logs have been ebonized to take on an aged appearance. Corten is a weathering steel that will develop a rich patina over time. Unlike regular steel, the rust creates a protective layer for the steel underneath ensuring it's longevity.
"River & Moon" - A Bronze, glass kinetic, sculpture was inspired by the landscape of Twickenham, Central Oregon.
The John Day river, rim rock formations and the rising moon are elements that are incorporated into this piece.
The bronze sculpture was commissioned by a Seattle couple with a ranch overlooking the valley and the John Day river, the sculpture is the centerpiece for the entryway. The natural look of bronze combined with the water quality of the glass really ties into the natural beauty of the area.
AvalonBay Communities transformed the old Phil Smart Mercedes Benz dealership on 600 E Pike St. into a seven-story multi-family/retail project. As part of the project AvalonBay preserved portions of the old dealership and commissioned local artist Troy Pillow to design a breeze-way pass through with an homage to Mercedes Benz.
Troy created a grid system backed by perforated sheet in which iconic Mercedes Benz parts were attached.
For over a decade, I have been creating unique sculptures that capture attention and engage the imagination through simple design and kinetic movement.
