Always love to see the plan lines and the sculptural results. I'd like to think I'm beginning to see how your creative process works; Makes me want to do something similar on one of my projects.

That's basically it, not much else to tell.  Huh

Inspiration, It may be a good thing.
I didn't end up chiseling the lines.

I starting detailing it last night.
I'll post some up next time I got some.

Will do, thanks.

I knocked the stem from some rivets.
Ground them down, careful not to drill right through the house, I then pressed them in.



Cut out for it to sit in.





Started blending the lava.

Ya'  know what Mr Grub?

You actually blow my mind sometimes with what you do and your capabilities to craft metal.

No, don't like it....... NOT! Yet another excellent creation sir! Brass and copper be damned, I love it.

Fascinating to watch it all come together. Don't know where you get the inspiration from but it is magic.

Now...that is too cool.

What are it's overall dimensions?
You should see if you could show that in a art gallery.

I was just thinking the same myself.
Omaru has a couple of good locations where it would look "Right At Home".

Now wouldn't that be cool if some people saw my art.  Smiley

What are it's overall dimensions?

It's stands about maybe 18" high and about 12" collapsed.
The main case holds a 6" speaker comfortably.

I'd seriously look into seeing what a gallery may think. Research a few so you pick the right ones and show them your portfolio.
