This piece depicts the importance of the work of trades people in our modern technological world and is a tribute to those who "make it happen". The skilled worker is the "Big Piece of the Puzzle". The spherical component being

received from a crane represents our technological world being carried by

highly skilled trades people. This important group is not often celebrated.

This is my visual ode to trades people.
