Exciting new public sculpture coming to Amesbury Wiltshire UK

Andy and Michelle would like to raise awareness and general interest in their new, and first large scale public sculpture. Please pass the link on to anyone who you think may be interested.
Solstice was born from many journeys driving down the 303 thinking that it needs something. Drawing on inspiration from the surrounding area and a fasination with our ancestors, especially early metalwork, the concept was born. An opportunity presented itself when the Amesbury Visual Artists organised the first art trail in Amesbury. Andy and Michelle have carefully designed Solstice to be perfect for the site and area. He is an artist funded project, brought to conception following a meeting with the Holiday Inn and an idea for an art trail sculpture, since then the project has grown and focused.


Making Bells

My wife is driving me nuts about making a large scale bell or wind chime. I've seen some great work that apparently used recycled propane or gas cylinders/tanks. Does anyone have any advise on the process or even finding the cylinders?

Trouble with tig welding small Everdur bronze piece to larger bronze.

| | | |

Hi, I am an inexperienced tig welder trying to weld a small ear to a larger horse body- the body is about 12" high, and pretty thick- close to 1/4" thick walls.(cast). The ear is about 1/4 x 1/2". The ear just melts into a blob, and the stub on the main body just plops.


Questions related to a tree sculpture

| | | |

I am going to create a large scale sculpture of a stylized tree (about 5-7 meters high) but have no experience of working with metal. The tree will be placed outdoors. Do you have some suggestions as to what the most ecologically friendly and robust material for this might be (aluminium, steel?), and then from there, how I should connect them together?


Help needed

| |

A few days ago I was at the dumpster and spotted a Lincoln AC/DC 225/125 arc welder that had been tossed. From the visible damage, the thing appeared to have fallen off a truck speeding down the highway. The case was split, dented and mashed, panels torn completely loose, knobs missing, etc. The leads had been cut off as well. Still, I figured it might be useful for parts so I dragged it home.


Beginning sculptor needs some advice re: choosing materials/fabricating

Fabrication | | | |

I'm going to be creating a 5' tall metal sculpture. I want to create it out of small (~1" or a bit smaller diameter) disks, or washers, or whatever I can find cheaply and in bulk. This sculpture just needs to support its own weight, so doesn't have to be super strong.
