The Iron Maiden by ~AGMorgan This metal sculpture is like straight from a sci fi novel. You'll appreciate the time and dedication put into creating this Iron Maiden. ( Suggested by Myana and Featured by ohnojaylo )

Yeah! If only I had enough tools at home. I can only craft things at work, so they must fit in my bag.

She doesn't usually, but when she does...

Of course, it helps if your a real gear head to.

I have accepted your invitation and looked through your gallery. Very cool, very moody, and the steam is strong with you.

I'm always amazed at how versatile cardboard is. if you do, be sure to let me know.

4 feet, nine inches tall.
Perhaps not quite 'life size', but well within the realm of possibility.

You flatter me too much, But thank you anyway.

I tell ya, the bigger stuff is actually easier to work on than the little stuff. Big pieces have a lot more room for error.

Now would you GET OFF MY LEG?! GAAACK!

Maybe so, but not by her.
She's a MAIDEN, remember.


C3-P0 is gay?!

I've taken a look at your gallery. I am sure you can do this type of thing far better than I. Let me know when you get something up.

The next one is in the shop, being built right now.

Thanks but you know it is all in the eye of the beholder. I am just such a horder, i have old engineering parts metal offcuts and bits of wood stockpiled everywhere so i don't know why it never really occured to make some assemblage pieces. Cast bronze is so expensive and time consuming but generally through the process there is the oppertunity to make editions or multiples of the same piece. the beauty of something like Iron maiden is you or the buyer knows that she is so completely unique! Awesome!

Wow she is fantastic! Do you exhibit her , and if so do you find yourself adding or doing just a little more everytime she goes on show. I always find there is more to do, sculpture seems like the kind of work that never finishes as long as you have it!

Thank you.
I've not had much opportunity to show her at... shows. Had her in a gallery in Eureka Springs for about a year.
There's a few things I'd like to add, but I need to find the right pieces first. Yes if you don't watch yourself you could keep working on something forever.
