Quite simply this is something I have to remind myself of everyday to just be here in the moment and stay present. This piece represents that continuous struggle to just stay in the moment and enjoy it.
This is made from a recycled metal plow blade from a tractor. I get the piece sandblasted then cut the design with a plasma cutter then I grind the metal to a smooth finish. Then I cut the backing and add the textures with various grinders. I color the piece using dyes or patinas and get it powdercoated with a clear gloss. The final step is to add the lighting and batteries.
It has a switch on the back that allows you to turn the LED light on and off and a holder to hold the battery pack of 8 AA batteries. It can also plugin with an AC Adapter. It has a heavy duty wire and weighs about 20 lbs, you can use a heavy duty 50lb wire hanger to hang it on the wall.
