Step three: Weld. (Proceed with caution! By all means take a course!)
This one is 20 in x 42 in with a 48in round base of black marble.
This sculpture is tailored after the Bandurria Bird which is a type of Black-Faced Ibis found only in South America. I finished this commission back in 2010 during my first trip to Chile. I fell in love with the bird so when I was asked by the Le Reve Hotel in Santiago to make a sculpture in their courtyard, I was thrilled.
