Three items being submitted for Art at the Mill
Inspired by David Smith. Stands about 7 feet. Steel remnants up to 3/4 inch thick give it a substantial presence.
Made from an old wagon wheel hub band. Serves as a hitching post, hand rail and great piece of art.
Bottle Tree construction underway. 80 feet of rebar, 30 cuts, a bunch of bending and lots of welding make up this Bottle Tree. Holds 22 bottles. Will update with bottles on it soon….got some drinking to do.
This is a a variation on a piece from last years tour. Did not like the previous top pipe but this one is much better scale.
I have had this around the shop for some time. I just started playing with it again and added the pipe to it. I really like the way it is going…. It might be done but I will stare at it for a while.
Modified the stemware on the martini! Mostly finished with a few final welds to make and then I will figure out what I want to do for the final finish. I am thinking rust of course but I might get handy and lay down some paint.
A larger outdoor steel sculpture I started working on today. So far so good. The “balance” is right and scale seems pretty good. Just tacked up for now so I can continue to modify. To do: figure out topping it off and a few additions to the base. Stands about 6.5 ft. high and about 8 ft. wide so far.
A lobster I did for a good friend of mine in Maine. Sits proudly in front of his house with his buoy. He has been a lobsterman for over 40 years so I was not sure how he would react. Lucky for me he loved it.
Fun abstract piece out of a couple of 2×3.5 foot steel arcs. Placed on a minimal stand for a very “floaty” look.
