The first metal sculpture i ever made was a lobster. They of course lend themselves well to metal with their beautiful repetitive, layered exoskeleton. I love the flowering affect that the tail, and the leg cuffs on either side of the body have.
I am particularly pleased with the facial structure with all the antenna and their housings as well as the silver detail within the large claw. While the solid color of the blue shows off the lobsters natural layering better, this coloring technique brings stunning iridescent qualities that capture light in beautiful ways that i find works well juxtaposed to the sturdy articulated form of the lobster.
This metal lobster sculpture is wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel colored using only heat patinas and must be kept indoors.
