Making a Sculpture: Part 4

Now that I’ve got all the components folded back up and welded off, I need to assemble them all together to make the finished piece. It’s at this stage that I need to make sure what finish will work best for the piece; if a colored powder coat is desired, I then need to grind off all the welds (“chase” them) to leave a nice smooth joint with no pits or scratches. I like the heat patterns to show on the “Pharaoh’s Dream” as it adds another level of visual metaphor.

Once the components are all assembled, the sculpture gets a clear powder coat to prevent it from rusting and to give it a nice sheen.
