Thanks Dan. I had a vision of that sculpture while I lay face Down on Snowy Mountain Vermont, on St. Patricks Day. At the time, I was paralyzed from the neck down and couldn't even feel myself breathing. The work itself is a composite of lost wax investment casting, CNC machined Aluminum billet and old house plumbing. The face is mine, I covered my face in layers of Aluminum foil then placed the foil in plaster of paris and then I filled the blank with hot wax. when it cooled I peeled away the foil and used to wax to cast a 440 stainless steel.
There are no welds of any kind each piece will come apart again like a lego. I transport it that way in about 6 sections. It only weighs about 80 lbs.
Last summer I was putting it together for a show and it took me about an hour to put it together because I forgot how it went.
Was that from a skiing accident? Wow...80 Lbs. This is what you were talking about when you mentioned Weight regarding Sculptures the other day. Good thing it comes apart...LOL..Need Tabs A and B...LOL
Lynn Thanks... A-star-isk, is kinetic only in the fact that it hangs and always seems to be moving. I think Implied movement is an interesting concept also. It pretty much seemed to tell me how it wanted to be built.
The star portion is suspended by a single point right?

Andee... In any case, there probably should be a Thread on the technical aspect of Sculpture, but that would probably work better in a group setting. And there is an awesome group on Sculptures. The issue would be the diverse types of sculptures, (ceramic, Clay, Bronze and Metal) and the ways different Sculptors Join their materials.
Great Idea, and something to think about for sure. One thing we need to make clear, As far as Sculptors go...I'm certainly not anywhere near the top, and There are plenty that use far more sophisticated tools than I do. I guess what I'm saying is I don't think I would be that qualified on the tips and tricks part.
