you,re really a metal

you,re really a metal recycling artist Paul...this piece makes me smile....
it seems like you forgot something...the lock and plain washer....but where would that be placed in this piece???maybe it could be as a wheel for the stretcher or an ambulance hehehe...
i cant help myself thinking about it coz i like it...a very simple bolts with a sort of welding,grinding,bending and turns out to be wonderful piece...i,ll try to create something also from bolts,may i???

Hi Harwell

Yes go for it! Nuts.bolts and washers are wonderful to work with. I did try to use heavy bolts on their side for the heads of the figures but had a hell of a job trying to get a good weld..I've only got a hobby MIG welder.

the hardest thing in this type of sculpture i find is trying to create movement in the piece i'm not sure if I achieved it all that well...I also found that old rusty bolts polished up look better

thanks for your kind comments

best regards

Paul G
