47" wide x 33" tall x 12" deep
A gallery had been wanting one of these for a while so I decided to give it a shot. It was challenging because it doesn’t have the brilliant colors of say a blue crab and its claws and facial structure aren’t as flashy which posed and interesting challenge.
I added a bit of pattern to the shell and brought in some iridescent colors while brightening up leg segments to help distinguish one part from another and giving it a little extra pop. I think it turned out pretty tasty… so to speak.
This metal dungeness crab sculpture is wall hanging, handmade entirely out of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and must be kept indoors.
