This piece is currently in progress at the shop. Its a cold bent contemporary sculpture constructed with blind welds  measuring 40”h x 18”w x 12”d. When I started, my goal was to convey a human form and story with as few lines as  possible. Titled “Nurture”, this piece represents a woman focused intently on an infant in her arms. In the first picture, the  basic form and construction is complete. In the second, the “infant” has been added and adjustments to the woman’s  head angle and arm curve make the two interact more intimately. An acid soak has cleaned all surfaces and a protective  coat of oil will stabilize the piece until the finishing patina is selected and applied.
