Hand Bent vs CNC Waterjet Shapes
We make it easy for the Terrazzo contractor to install dazzling artwork, logos and patterns.

Working as a team with Signature Design and Engraphix, Creative Edge fabricated all-metal animals and plants from corten steel and brass to enhance the newly built educational plaza for The Nature Conservancy. Corten is a self-oxidizing metal which weathers well and is ideal for outdoor projects. Brass was integrated into the design as a further enhancement. Our waterjet technology was programmed to cut holes in the corten steel and each piece of brass was fastened to the steel by using a stud and nut. The completed pieces of corten and brass were then welded to the stainless steel panels.

A ticker tape parade down Broadway Avenue in New York City is one of the greatest honors that can be bestowed on a hero. Dale Travis & Associates have managed the project for at least 15 years for the Alliance of Downtown New York. Creative Edge Master Shop manufactured durable granite strips to memorialize each Manhattan ticker tape parade. Installed along the ticker tape parade route in the financial district, this area is called the Canyon of Heroes. The artwork sustains the memory of these historical celebrations.
The many parades since 1886 have honored returning armies, foreign heads of state, kings and queens, religious leaders, explorers, astronauts, artists and the New York Yankees just name a few. Together these parades and their stories represent a chronicle of our era.
All along this four-mile route known as the Canyon of Heroes, embedded in the sidewalks, are 3 inch thick granite plaques inlaid with stainless steel letters. They show the name of the honoree, date and purpose of parade. Some examples of these 200+ inlays include:
The first ticker tape parade was held in 1886 following the dedication of the Statue of Liberty.
