Dragonfly is a hybrid with influences taken from both Dragonflies and Damselflies. The 806 holes in the wings are hand cut and then carved to create veining. The Abdomen section is turned from Purple Heart the mechanical parts are all turned from Brass.

Work is moving along with the Dragonfly project, the wings are ready for the mounts to be created, the body section has been turned ready for carving and the upper section of the legs are done . Still lots to do but really pleased with how it is shaping up.Tags: assembly, brass, copper, Dragonfly, London, machine, machined, maple, poseable, Sculpture, steampunk, victorian, wood
I have started on a very ambitious project, Dragonfly. This piece will be mage mostly of carved Oak and Brass. I have made a start on the intricate wings, the holes have all been pierced out by hand (over 800 holes). I have worked into the surface with chisels creating veining and different levels. So far the wings have taken about 30 hours. The nest stage will be to begin creating a body section and hanging system for the wings.Tags: assembly, brass, Dragonfly, machined, steampunk, victorian, wings, wood
