Three Steel Cubes Painted Pearl Blue

This brilliant iridescent blue three cube contemporary metal sculpture my latest creation.  It consist of three different sized cubes made from 1/8″ steel plate welded in 3D hollow forms with an oxygen acetylene torch.  You can read more about the process here.  It does take practice to do this efficiently.  It is a combination of choosing right welding tip size for optimum heat output as well as the correct travel speed to minimize warping the hollow forms.

This sculpture was carefully assembled to get the most of the angles and perspectives available.  To add to the bold arrangement of three dimensional shapes, a pearl blue mica paint job was applied to the cubes.  This helps to accentuate the dimensional qualities of the piece.  To elevate the cubes, a stand was created with 1/4″ thick steel  plate and a 5/8″ round rod.  This stand is painted gloss black so the iridescent pearl blue cubes are able to stand out more.
