It was such an honor to be tasked with such a meaningful gift. We chatted a bit about ideas and settled on a horse with lettering surrounding. I decided to go with a two dimensional approach on this sculpture. This was a fun challenge because I had to draw everything using a small pencil grinder. I had to grind everything and then color it blue (the hottest color) then grind everything away except what I wanted to remain blue and then colored it purple (2nd hottest color). I repeated this process through the heat color spectrum until grinding the final silver details! I am quite happy with the final result and look forward to making more of these two dimensional "sculptures".

This metal horse sign sculpture is wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and is safe to be kept outdoors!
