Grasshopper


Recommended Posts

Thank you all for the complements. I forgot to mention that the piece is lifesize. The grasshopper is about two inches long. Jim, The sculpture is entirely fabercated from a hundred or so individual pieces I find that so much more fun than casting. I am posting a piece with a lifesize cast bee in 14k gold. All other parts are fabercated. The "box" is steel.

Hi Doug,

I have thought about making some of my sculpture articulated like the incredible pieces created by 19c Japanese armorers when they could no longer make swords in the Meiji period. I have done a number of drawings and designs but that is as far as The project has gone. As you have suggested I have thought of making them move.
