Meridian X – by Ed McCullough
[The concluding piece in the Meridian Series]
2012 / Stainless steel Location: Hines VA Hospital
Having Vector fabricate this sculpture was a pleasure.
They have a long history of turning out superior work, so I knew that MERIDIAN X would be in good hands.
And was it ever! Two reasons prevail:
they are consumate technicians;
they have an artist’s grasp of what makes a work of art a work of art.

Meridian X and Vector Fabricating
In 2011, Ed McCullough contracted Vector to fabricate ‘Meridian X’. Ed provided a small maquette (approx. 1:12 scale). Mike Wilkie engineered the structure; Nathan Overley made the fabrication drawings and Erik Lowe was the lead fabricator in the shop. Installation was a joint effort on the part of Vector and Barry Tinsley (Sculpture Sources). Vector is particularly proud to have been part of ‘Meridian X’ because the sculpture is a culminating piece in an important series of works by an artist greatly admired and respected by the Vector team.
