New art medium for me
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:37:57 PM »

I've asked a number of questions about aluminum and such recently.  Now that I've gotten past several obstacles, etc., I was able to finally put the grinder to the metal.

It's still a work in progress, but even the initial grinding passes have resulted in a nice effect.

Hey everyone - I have now seen a finished piece, and it is unbelievably impressive! One of the coolest things I've seen.

I say unbelievably because there's no way to visualize how it looks just from seeing a still photo. The piece in progress above doesn't have any color or surface coat on it, but even if it did there's no way to imagine the overall effect of the light playing across a piece as it moves. I don't see how even a 2-D video could do it justice.

I was honestly amazed that anyone could take a flat piece of sheet metal and produce a work of art like I saw yesterday.

Here's where to see some finished pieces:
