To create this 12′ tall sheet aluminum sculpture, I first made full size cardboard templates. From these, I was able to cut and bend all the aluminum. Individual pieces were welded and finished, then assembled. You can see some of the supports in the base. Steel rods run through the entire sculpture for added strength. Still have more to do!
I am starting a new sculpture using the model on the left as my design. It is being built at Carolina Bronze Sculpture out of sheet aluminum. It will be going to Raleigh when it is finished. More pictures will becoming soon.
