New copper sculpture

It has been fun finishing this copper sculpture “Phoenix”.

The new exploration for me was to figure out how to let the piece rotate in the base.  To achieve this, I carved the base out of cement and inserted tubing and ball bearings.

You can find videos on my FB page.

Now I am creating a larger 5.5 foot version in steel.

New Sculptures

Here are new fold forming sculptures for you to enjoy.

It takes many hours of hammering to shape these forms out of a flat sheet of copper. Knowing how much to stretch the copper in order to get the expected form takes many years of experience.

This one is the latest:

Hanging sculpture at Ashwood Waldorf School in Rockport Maine

I just installed a sculpture in the main entry at the Ashwood School.  I think it is perfect for the space.  And it moves very nicely in the wind.  The piece still needs a name and I hope the students will come up with something fitting.
