Light Fixtures: Sheet Metal, Square Metal Tubing, & Nails
Worked welding skills, both TIG and MIG, while creating three different light fixtures. Prior to welding the projects, the parts were cutout with the plasma cutter and horizontal band saw.
Installation Art Sculpture: Sheet Metal, Stainless Steel, & Spacers
RB in the Garden is a tribute to my late father, who was illiterate, rough around the edges, and made of many different layers. Constructed of steel sheet - both regular and stainless - cut with the plasma cutter and assembled together with stainless steel connectors - bolts, nuts, and spacers. I gained more experience working with sheet metal and the plasma cutter. RB in the Garden now resides in Grants Pass, Oregon among my father’s beloved grapes.
Kinetics Sculpture: Sheet Metal, Metal Tubing, & Wire
Davenport is based on the small wooden toys that collapse when the bottom is pushed, but Davenport is made of steel...sheet, rod, springs, and wire. In this project, I worked with the horizontal metal band saw, MIG welder, right-angle grinder, and plasma cutter.
