Large Metal Art by Cindy Chinn
For the past few years, I’ve been kept busy with metal art – mostly while using saws. The past couple of months, I’ve been expanding my work to include larger “non-saw” pieces. Although I have worked with metal and used a lot of techniques on my saws, I’m finding that there is a whole new world out there once I drop the saw out of the design.
Each one is unique and they all hold a common element of a plasma cut bird sitting about the bath.
As for the other parts, it’s a mix of automotive and agricultural based scrap metal. Each one is steady enough and bottom heavy to hold up to the Nebraska weather (well, within reason!).
Here’s a gallery of the five metal art bird baths:
This gave me the incentive to work on the next one (a cow) and that led to another (a pig) and now I’m in the shop making a chicken!
I am loving this series of “Barnyard Portraits” metal art and I might get carried away and make a complete menagerie before I’m done!
