Metal Sculpture

This piece was originally a 1941 snow plow blade from Oakland County Michigan road commission.  I plasma cut the design, ground it clean, colored the pool balls then had it clear powder coated.  It stands 81 inches tall.  Mounted on marble.

This piece is made from black water pipe, copper, and marble.  Once the piece was done, it was sand blasted then doused with salt water on the trunk to rust it and a patina to turn the copper green.
