I'm doing an MA Industrial Design course and my brief for this project is to design a gift. My idea involves metal art and the use of rust.
I want to create a piece of art where the metal will rust by itself into a specific image that I have previously created.

I built Styracosaurus! out of 100% aluminum. It weighs approximately 2,000 lbs., and measures 22-feet long by 7-feet tall. Its eyes are made of silicon bronze, and it is the first in a series that I envision building.

This is a picture I took of my first attempt at metal sculpture. It is the base and trunk of a giant sequoia tree. It looks a bit shiny, it needs coloring of some sort, I have not figured that part out yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I guess I never thought that the picture would be laying on its side, lol.

When I make copper sculptures I wire brush the end product to clean it up. I am now making some miniature copper sculptures and it is hard to get into the tight spots with a wire brush to clean the residue left from brazing. Is there a way that I can dip them into a liquid solution to get the brazing residue cleaned up and then wire brush the rest to clean it up? Would there be a simple solution of something like pool chemicals or house hold cleaners? I am not interested in getting into acids.

This is a link to a dvd on youtube about my Metal Art Sculptures. It is in french, I live in France, but I believe images tell more than words.
For me, the great joy in my work comes from turning something considered worthless into the artwork it becomes. In this way I am showing my respect for the metal.
