Abstract Metal Room Decor Project

 

IMAG1097

A few weeks ago, I was inspired to create a simple yet elegant piece.  I wanted to apply a slightly curved bend to 3/16 inch steel rods and cut them to various lengths and weld them together in the random web like pattern shown above.  What I have come up with thus far is a piece 52 inches long and 9 inches wide.  A long slender work designed to adorn a wall over a sofa or sectional.  Perhaps it can also work over a fireplace as well.

This is the sculpture in white primer ready to be painted.

I have been making metal art for about three years now and it is no longer just a whimsical passtime.  My skills that i have picked up are being used to create works with deeper meaning and purpose.  When I finally get around to cleaning this sculpture up, I will braze some mounting hooks and apply a coat of white primer.  Then I will follow with a brilliant and cool metallic acrylic topcoat sealed in oil based clear coat to preserve the finish.  Right now, I am contemplating mixing a little blue with silver to get a metallic ice blue or maybe just bright silver with a transparent turquiose glaze over it for depth.  Feel free to chime in on your thoughts of color.
