DENNIS BAUM received his degree in Astrophysics from
UC Berkeley, and has tried every hobby he could get into.
1995, they have been working together under the name SUNBROTHERS,
creating solar powered botanical sculptures. Kevin is the
tireless perfectionist and innovator of the duo, while Dennis
considers himself both the source of enthusiasm, and the
naysayer. Their art is a masterful blend of science and
nature. Copper, hand-blown glass and electronics are fashioned,
with passionate detail, into realistic analogs of the plant
world. Their work to date has included sunflowers, corn
stalks, pea vines, and roses.
