Artomatic419 Gallery

Artmetalists |

Thought I'd start a Gallery Page to post picts of the work being sent up to the Artomatic419 show. I know rick already posted a couple of picts, but maybe he can repost them in this thread as well. Can't wait to see everyone's work.

Hi Jake, Nice piece. The

Hi Jake,
Nice piece. The textured metal strips wrapped as in a basket really do it! Excellent idea, and those extra wraps
up on the vase around the flower, add abstraction to the work in my opinion. I noticed a bluish tone besides the bright steel, is that due to heat treating, wrapping? Stainless or mild?? Congratulations. Nelson.

Thanks Nelson, the material

Thanks Nelson, the material is mild steel, and the blue tone was kind of an accident and developed while i was wire brushing with a grinder after forging it(in the cooldown stage). I've done this before on thicker material and ended up with a silver finish, but here it was blue. I though it was kind of a nice contrast so i left it.

Thanks Paula, I saw this

Thanks Paula, I saw this technique in a floral magazine only it was done with long thing leaves. Even though the straps were only about 1/16" thick by the time i was done beating on them, the thickness really started to add up, creating challenges where multiple pieces overlapped. Ended up feeling like i was putting together a puzzle, lol. Next time i try this, i think ill use a more 3d(roundish) textured stock of some sort and make the basket a little looser.

Jake,
I like the design, thanks for setting up the post.
I'm gonna try to knock out a small repousse piece for the show. I use a cheap recipe for the pitch, plaster & bees wax.

Thanks Janet, I want to try to make some giant baskets with really crazy profiles this summer. Hopefully there is time and space in the shop, lol. I think the dragon will be a big hit, I'm excited to see all of our work up together.

Totally Awesome!

Jake,
Received your artwork today, it is awesome! The pictures don't do it justice. Can't wait to show it off! Can't remember, do you want this on a metal stand, or a shelf (wooden or metal). Just let me know. Thanks, Lorrie

Hi Lorrie and thanks for the

Hi Lorrie and thanks for the compliment, sorry about the delay in responding. I'll trust your judgment on whether to use a stand or shelf, that way you'll have some latitude arranging the booth.

Your repousse piece looks really cool, can't wait to see the end results.

Thanks again

Warren's Pod for the show

This is Warren's pod that he brought down for the show. He also brought down some bases for us to borrow, they look very professional. I can't figure out what's in that pod. Maybe I'll take it apart while I have it at the house! Ha!

Wrong one

Lorrie,
Just for what it is worth the picture you posted is not the same piece that I brought.
The picture is of #1 and I brought #2. Yeah I guess I should of added to the title. If you notice in this picture it is missing something?
#3 is still in the thinking stage along with #4 and #5 when it emerges completely.

www Metalrecipes -- heat and beat to the desired shape, repeat as necessary.

Sorry for the confusion

Hi Warren,
Sorry I got the wrong artwork, I just assumed that you would have already posted it. I'll try to get a picture of the current one and post.
