Basic Wave Structure Done!

welding wave

The Welder of Distinction has been busy in his man-cave, welding the inner skeleton to hold the sides of the wave together.  The man-cave is alight with fireworks, smelly and rife with testosterone, so special protection is required when delivering cups of coffee.  I’d like to have a go at a weld myself tho….

Et Voila! The 1200mm diameter 3D wave structure in all its mild steel glory.  You definitely don’t want this sucker rolling over your foot. Very heavy indeed.  The next task is to attach stainless steel rods which will eventually hold the inner mosaic section.  Watch this space…..

About Islandgirl

I always wanted to be a mermaid. But I quite like my legs, so I became a Scuba Diving Instructor instead. Then I found a Texan husband in the Caribbean, moved to Jersey and had children. The water's a bit chilly for me here, so I decided to make my love of creativity my new job. How cool is that! So that's what I do: I paint, I draw and I sculpt. My inspiration comes from my travels, and from the beautiful nature all around me. Follow me a little bit on one of my journeys as I make a big big sculpture for one of local hotels. Thanks for visiting...
