Really beautiful, love it. I have also made a forged/welded rose, but it didnt came out as good as this one.
But you seem to have used another technique than I in how you made the flower. Is the rose petals separate objects that are welded on to each other? My rose have petals that are made of sliced round discs, and there is about four petals on each disc.
At first glance it seemed like this would be pretty difficult to make,
But compared to some other metal works i've seen (x-x Like your Iron Maiden) this has it's own sort of simple beauty.
By all means! As long as your not just out right copying it (which would be very difficult from just this photo). I'm sure I'm not the first with this use for pipe fishmouth scraps, though probably one of a very few.
If you make it, you'd better put it on Deviant Art or I'll always wonder how it came out.
Its really nicely done, I love it!
I made a rose too some years ago.
It was made of it with copper though, and the whole surface was soldered with tin to make it shiney and silver.
I lost it though
I'd love to make somehthing of steel too.
omgosh....I WANT IT!...I WANT IT! I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is the most lovely thing i've ever seen. OMGOSH I wish I were that talented. the fact that you can make something so lovely out of something I trip over lol is amazing.
plez oh plez oh plez let me know when you post something else....
OMGOSH I LOVE IT!!!!!
THIS HAS TO GO IN MY FAV'S!
This is how you make someone feel good about their work, thanks.
But if you've never tried something like this how do you know your not more talented? Its just a mater of finding the best angle of a thing.
I'll try to keep you posted if you insist.
The spinning blades of death tend to keep you on your toes, you just gotta be careful. But I will try to tell you when the next woman is finished.
There, you see? I have tried music before, and failed, many times. Just ain't got no rhythm.
What do you play/sing?
Metal work is not hard at all if you've got the tools. This needed a vice/anvil, hammer, channel lock pliers, and welding equipment. Finding this stuff is half the battle, the rest is mostly beating the metal into shape.
Metal work is a skill that takes years of intense training and anguish to learn.
