Ever since i was a kid i have been mesmerized by the stunning blue of their claws and the natural curvature and the beautiful spines of their shells. This too went through many iterations before I could get the shell and legs to play nicely with each other. But they seem to be friends and work well together now, which is a relief!

This metal blue crab sculpture is wall hanging, handmade entirely out of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and must be kept indoors. It also comes in two sizes but just like all my sculptures I could resize it if so desired.
