A little addition to the garden


A friend of ours turns scrap metal into sculpture; Spacebunny asked him if he could do a skull. He came by a few days later and presented us with this.

I want one.

Would look great in a landscape bed with flame colored plants. Imagine a cardinal climber or red trumpet vine trained so the flowers pop out of the eye sockets...ok that might be a bridge too far.

Blogger Happy LP9 April 21, 2017 2:11 PM  

Awesome craftsmanship. Picture of the month!

Speaking of skulls I was meaning to ask if that one graphic of the skeleton or skulls that read, "all your narratives belong to us" or something like that can be a t-shirt for men and women as long as its cut to be a full ladies shirt down to the hip, no stomach or hips exposed like the perfect cut shirt w/ CHouse labeled.

Best part of the story is that Spacebunny wanted a skull LOL

Anonymous DeeJay April 21, 2017 2:45 PM  

Very... industrial, heh. It's always fascinating to see what sculptors today can whip up, utilizing obsolete/discarded tech.

My favorite is still the one I encountered several years ago, visiting my alma mater: what would pass for a 'beach ball' at a Ministry concert. The campus also used to be a factory in Victorian times, so it was doubly appropriate.

given that it's a 3 dimensional shape, it would be more effective to build a frame ( jig ) to support the links while you're welding them, but yes.

he's not fat.

in dwarfism, it's fairly common for the torso to be closer to normal size than the extremities.

Very nice sculpture. I can't help but wonder what kind of backdrop would best work to showcase its structure, since that wall is too wonky for it. Is there a white wall around?

If only I were a wealthy patron of the arts, able to hire skilled artisans to beautify my estates and grace the salons with art. Aside from writing an 18-volume comic book series about three martial arts students and their itinerant master (and making some other poor suckers illustrate it), I would commission a life-size steel sculpture of Beowulf vs The Dragon, that spits ball bearings via internal Archimedes screw in lieu of flame.

It is suitably evil. Are you going to decorate it for Christmas or do Italians not go for that sort of gaudiness?

Anonymous I like the sculpture, sue me. April 22, 2017 3:01 AM  

The genius Mexican/Indian living in Italy commissioning amateur yard art below their terraced pool is a complete punchline.

Me, I'd trade nearly all my principles for an art garden around my Italian villa.

Your name is false, I weld quite well, thank you.

Comment made me chortle though.

Nice to see another metal head around these parts. Stick around, I may need backup someday.

Guaranteed, that feller laid that chain out on his welding table and stuck it all together by hand, no jig required.

Not to deride the Dark Lord's friend specifically (as I don't know him for Luigi), but generally speaking, people who claim to be "metal sculptors" are to welding what "queer interpretive dance troupes" are to ballet.

I've seen some truly talented metal workers who shape metal and create sculptures on the side, but for every one of those guys, there are a hundred assholes with a 110V flux core welder from Home Depot booger welding hunks of rusted shit together into random shapes and selling the result to other hipsters for weed money.

Again, not saying that this guy is that, just an observation from experience.

I hope Vox and SB enjoy their new yard art. The feller certainly looks happy to have given it to them.

have known since the 1980s and metals shop, thank you very much.

you want stick or MIG? i've never tried welding with oxy, just cutting.

not saying i'm pro level, but i certainly understand the principles.

patent it? are you tarded?

how could i patent an old wooden chair? you could also use old plastic lawn furniture, but that would likely be a single use jig.
