My latest piece of sculpture is proving more complex then I had realised when I started it.
It is one of the largest pieces I have attempted and it is using zinc as well as foil to give it added it more strength and stability.
In the base I have used copper inclusions and beaten wire as well as fused pieces. The panels are inserted using an epoxy resin and will also be soldered into place.
The final stage will be when the birds arrive, at present they are still in process. The birds this time will be without wire as I am focusing on the concept of shoal into murmuration.
Also if fish are turning into birds surely they would want to be as many colours as possible?
It is still focusing on the concept of escape, flight and a freedom from.
