Czara Babelkami was the first of Ursula VonRydingsvard's sculpture I worked on, assisting with the final layers of lamination. A few months later I led the installation of the Babelki Bowl along with the Bowl With Fins, and Damski Czepek in Madison Square Park in NYC. After the MSP show, I re-installed Czara at a private residence in Long Island.
"Braden is an extraordinary problem solver. He loves working with materials and has an especially acute awareness of their properties, both how much that material can give, and its limitations. He has invented new ways of gluing our cedar together (which is a substantial portion of what we do in building and realizing my artwork.) Seeing the need for innovation, he invented many new tools that make the process of building a sculpture more precise and efficient. Braden’s interpersonal skills are exceptional. He has the confidence to be decisive when clear decisions need to be made, and also the intelligence to seriously consider differing opinions. There is not only a confidence, but a wisdom with which he directs groups of people, whether the people he knows intimately as those in my studio, or the staff in museums during installations."
