Stainless Steel Sphere1

Half Dome

Stainless steel objects

48" diameter. 2011

 

This sculpture contains over 100 pounds of re-purposed stainless objects collected in various locales around Los Angeles.

To make this large sphere perfectly round, I needed to first construct a 48" diameter plaster hemisphere to use as a template/mold. This half dome held the stainless pieces on an exact curve while being welded together.
