Delicate Flowers Created from Steel
As you enter Hollyhock, you’re drawn into the comforting feeling of being at home. At home with nature, surrounded by green fields and open spaces…without giving up the convenience of elite shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations. At home with some of the highest rated schools in the Metroplex. At home with the art and artistry of a master-planned community.
Art is a vital component to life at Hollyhock. It helps to shape and define the lifestyle of the community and its residents.
The entrance at Teel Parkway bridge, transporting residents and visitors alike, is a tranquil journey into Hollyhock. You’ll notice the juxtaposition of stunning, red hollyhock flowers against the natural colors and terrain of the Blackland Prairie. The hollyhock flowers, made from steel and powder coated to mimic the bright red of wild growing hollyhocks, were created using laser cutters and hand hammering techniques. Each petal of the hollyhock flower was precisely hand cut and molded, taking more than 24 hours to create just one hollyhock.
From Highway 380, you are greeted by the magnificent, 35-foot, vertical Corten steel monument rising and welcoming you to Hollyhock. Taking weeks to complete and install, the impressive landmark with intricately hand-cut hollyhock flowers will beautifully weather with time and nature.
The visual representations of hollyhock flowers, created from steel were crafted by the master metal workers of CT&S. Locally owned and operated, the AISC Certified company may shy away from the term “artists,” but they truly are, as evidenced by their creations. CT&S is well-known for the highest quality fabrication and installation of metals, but we like to think of them as creative, artistic geniuses capable of sculpting the toughest metals into delicate flowers.
