My Giant Metal Hand!

9 05 2008

This is my steel project from Sculpture II. It was made from two filing cabinets (one green/brown, and one grey) as well as steel that was left over from other people using the C&C plasma cutter.

All the welds are done with a Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welder, and all the cuts are plasma cut.
It took three weeks to make, and I was in the foundry 6 day a week, for at least two hours at a time (sometimes over six hours in one day). It stands just over five feet tall, and weighs close to 70 lbs. It was meant to funtion as a chair, and the drawer really works.
