So I have been boiling with the intention and inspiration to make large welded metal faces using upcycled materials. I also wanted to expand my inventory and start a new series of large welded metal face sculptures. The size of the faces will be structured around four feet from chin to top of head and will all be built over a substructure. I have done this once before in Woodstock NY. when i created a large stainless steel face over a rusted steel one.
I will document the process and share it here.
So far i've graphed a drawing of a male head onto my work surface and am laying down metal to duplicate the lines.
Its incredibly difficult to do it this way but im not computer savy enough to do it that way. So for now its allot of measuring.
