Spiral #2 Finished!!

Spiral #2 is DONE!! Titled “Taking The Curves”, steel, copper, wood, PVC.

17” diameter x 26” tall on pecky Cypress base

I am having so much fun carving space this way! I’m going to start using aluminum rods based directly in wood and see how that works. 

Also playing with other shapes, like fun splashes below - pencil is there for scale :-D

And then there’s framing…

Today was spent building the floater frame for “Pushing The Limits”. Thankful I have 4 corner clamps :-D  

After consideration, I decided to paint the inside of the fame in a deep blue/black. I didn’t want to use just black as it seemed too harsh and whenever I can use color (even this deep) I’d rather. I purchased simple corner moulding that had been primed. That let me sand it down to give the pickled look I like for simple frames here in Florida.

Spiral #3 in progress

Here is the beginning of Spiral #3. This will be the last one made out of steel, I am switching to aluminum now that I no longer have my steel shop for welding (sold - yay!). 

I also am returning to having figures on these spirals, I like the change in perception of scale with them. I think it allows for a grander feel to the strength of the spiral in it’s force of nature as it lifts us.

I have been thinking of opening my studio/home for a holiday Open Studio, we shall see…
