  2. TriPod ‘Goliath’

    Leave a Comment

    Based on the design of ‘TriPod’, a piece I designed at college. This upscaled version is posable and can be fixed in different positions. Unlike the original version that was laser cut, this piece has been fabricated from a multitude of small hand made components. The Piece was conceived for exhibition at the Fresh Air Sculpture Show.

    Solid Steel and Oak

  3. Tripod legs in production

    Work has begun on the steel legs for Tripod. Some design changes have had to take place due to the size of the piece, instead of the whole leg been cut from 20mm thick solid the majority of the leg will be made up of a framework, only the tips and pivot points will be from solid sheet. Really pleased with the rapid grogress.

    The wooden element is now finished. Work has begun on the supporting metal legs. with the immense weight of the oak piece I think the legs will need to be more heavy duty than I first thought.

    Progress is moving quickly with the wooden element. It has been turned down by Nigel to a rough form and the leg location holes have been drilled, just needs final shaping and sanding.

    The idea for a giant verson of my Tripod design has started to make headway. I have decided on a scale for the piece and work has begun on preparing the wooden element for the centre. The demensions for the finished wooden element will be approximately 20in (50cm) diameter by 48 inch (122 cm) hieght.

  8. Steampunk Hat Project

    I have started working on an oddball project, a three legged top hat. I have turned and forged the legs from brass bar and created a wooden section to mount them to. The lens and hat I bought from a flea market. The next step will be to add some decorative knee sections and possibly some pipe work for the underside of the hat.
