2 months of work crammed into a 2 min video
This last year I was selected to construct a sculpture for the city of Marana AZ. I proposed to construct a family of five deer that are faceted. My palimony sketch included a buck doe and three fawns. The projected needed to be metal and something that the High School students of Maranas welding class could be able to build. Ken Webb the welding teacher at the high school will be in charge of supervision and help of the construction of the three smaller fawns, not taller then 6ft. I will be constructing the two larger deer(buck and doe) the tallest reaching 10ft tall. Eric Norman will be assisting in the construction of the large creatures. Prior to construction dimensions had to be determined working along side CAD Engineer Jacob Patterson, we were able to scaled each deer found the measurements of each piece and descriptive annotation map for each piece.
The progress to date.
The Kids and their progress.
Been a while, towards the end of the year(2016) I was commissioned to repair this 1860s zinc sculpture. The head was broken off along with both arms and the base needed repair. Paint was going to be done from another artist to make this old sculpture shine again.
