New Steel Sculptures By Miss Lady Heart

1 Apr

Here are some photos of some of my recent work; two steel sculptures of birds.

Untitled, 2011

Mig-welded steel

Approx 4″ x 1.5″

This small Mig-welded sculpture, made to represent a dead bird was created by free -form Mig-welding on top of some large steel bearings. I finished off by adding wire legs and feet that had been partially shaped with a spot welder. When held its weight and cold temperature are very evocative. Not to get too cliche but it is kind of poetic when a bird dies, no?

Untitled, 2011

Mig-welded steel,

aluminum

Approx 9″ tall

This bird was made with the same Mig-welding process but I welded steel sheet wings and a tail feather to the steel bearings before I sculpted with the Mig-welder. The bird’s perch is lathed aluminum. I love how the bird turned out looking all puffed up and huddled into itself the way birds look when they are cold or sleeping.
