This six foot tall copper sculpture was hammer formed from sheet metal in two halves and TIG welded together. There is a steel armature inside which is welded to the steel base. Two round copper sheet metal hemispheres were formed with a technique called raising, and welded together to create the central sphere. The cracks are hammered into the sphere using a process called chasing. The green patina comes from an ammonia based solution, and the rest of the sculpture is colored with liver of sulfur. The sculpture was installed in a North Carolina neighborhood after being fabricated from an award winning student design.
