I grew up in Arizona and this piece captures the solitude of looking at a moonrise over the mountains. Always a contemplative place to sit in beauty and serenity. This piece is black with a purple LED light.
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. The LED light runs on 8 AA batteries or with a plug in AC power cord.
NOTE: This piece comes in various colors and can be made in any color combination with color changing light.
