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.
