Hornet

The Hornet is an assemblage of hundreds of individual components. The machine like qualities are perfectly balanced by the wooden elements. The piece has a distinct character which is enhanced by the aged appearance which has given it a ‘life history’.

The wings are sprung loaded and are repositionable as are the legs to offer a variety of different poses.

Charred maple, steel, brass and copper

Assembly. The beast emerges!

Started making all the brass sprung loaded pistons and other thingamajigs. Starting to get a feel for the scale of this piece (massive). Next I have to assemble all the wing mounts which means soldering steel… yay! Well here goes.
