Dennis is a dragonfly sculpture made from unfinished mild steel. His tail has a zigzag build-up of MIG weld to give texture. The feature on the wings is done with a bead of MIG weld. He has a wingspan of around 870mm. I can make a sculpture like this from around £200. I have previously made a similar sculpture in stainless steel but that would be more expensive.
These pictures were taken prior to 'rusting' the sculpture. Once rusted the sculpture takes on a rich brown colour which is particularly beautiful in morning and evening sunlight. It would be possible to paint or lacquer a sculpture like this to provide an alternative finish.
