Scrapmetal horse and jockey
Hi all,
New to the forum. I have attached a photo of a scrapmetal horse and jockey sculpture that I made for a small outback (Australia) community to celebrate the passing of 100 years of race meetings in that town. I hope you like. I will post more images including the construction process if anyone is interested. I am happy to exlpain how to 'make your own'
Thank you Andrew Whitehead[/IMG]

Welcome to the forum!

Love it! I'd love to know the process.

thankyou alwaysbehind, Tennessee and iridehorses. Im so glad you like the work. I started with a horse skull. built a wire scale copy then clad it in scrap. the bodyline and stance were from many net images. The secret of success or failure is the line from the nose to the end of the tail. ( look at attached photo)You know when it is correct. I made the work in 14 slip together pieces so that i could weld the insides as well as install it indoors if that was required. there was a lot of difficulty finding the right shape and size scrap parts.but as you can see on the legs if you maintain correct proportion between the parts the size can be a little wrong but it still looks believable. I am very happy with the result.[/IMG]

You have a truly amazing ability to see something that your scrap pieces can become. Wow! Amazing.

Wow, lovely work!

You're very talented. I look at scrap and think 'garbage' not art! :-P
