      It reminds me.....

      That is great work. Please keep us posted as it progresses.

      It is reminiscent of an I-MAX movie that I once saw about a sculpture's work, William (Bill) Lishman, "The Last Buffalo" .


      Much of this 3-D film was shot in his blacksmith shop, where you watched him work the steel and other metals, with power hammers and all the tools of the trade.


      The 3-D effect of molten metal heading straight for my lap was just about too much for me.

      To keep the images legal, here is a link to one of the pages of his site.

      http://www.williamlishman.com/film.htm

      If you track back to his home page you can see many of his other metal sculptures.

      I skipped a couple of pages of topic posts, and maybe I missed it, but if not, could you ladies relay any info about the tools, welding and otherwise that you find valuable in your project?

      Thanks for sharing this with us.

      P.S.
      I guess I skipped a a page or two too many. So let me say thanks for the serpent mother info, also.
      Thats an enormo-zilla ..... project!

          Hey James,
          I hope my posted images didn't whak your dial-up too badly, but you can see, it would be hard to describe what I was talking about. If broad-band is available in your area it's usually about as cheap as dial-up now.

          Oh yes, I sure am glad to hear there won't be any gender-cide!

            r90s,
            I don't think James has an OPTION of getting broadband even if he wanted to!!! Place where I would live on the Big Island of Hawaii, where land is more affordable, is very rural, and I would only have dial-up also...but it's STILL going to be a long while till I would move there, so maybe by then, there will be broadband...

              What I did when I lived in the mountains of Idaho, was to get satellite tv that gave me broadband download capability also, but upload then was still dial-up. It worked pretty well though as most of the load is download.

              They sometimes will give you the equipment, if you sign up for a year.

              Hopefully my suggestions in the forum are helpful

                I was wondering about the satellite tv thing. Hope he'll get this message! If not, I'll redo it tomorrow night

                      Windswept Silhouette

                      This is a photo of piece of mine called Windswept Silhouette...a life size figure in Corten steel rooted on a piece of granite(91/2 feet to her elbow).
                      I have tried making the photo smaller for we who have dial-up.
                      Bill Lishman, mentioned earlier in the thread is brilliant at everything he does, and also a very nice guy.
                      Years ago he created a huge replica of Stonehenge called 'Autohenge' using wrecked cars standing on end. weldress

                        thats verry cool.
                        what operation system are you using?? microsofyt has a resizer program for XP thats realy good. its under power toys on there site.

                        If broad-band is available in your area it's usually about as cheap as dial-up now.
                        too many cow's not enough people out here for them to bother running the lines. even the phone Co. said the lines wont suport DSL.

                        my satilite guy mentioned some thing called skyblue i think, so i'll look into that but he said it's expensive.

                          cool pic James! Left side looks like a woman bending backwards facing the left side of the screen doing some kind of dance
                          or is it just because I'm smoking too much of the good stuff???

                            sorry I missed your pic, then James had it on his on the new page
                            Glad I wasn't seeing things, 'cause I REALLY don't smoke the "good stuff."
                            thought maybe it was age

                              Very cool sculpture, "Windswept Silhouette".

                              I wonder if you know who was responsible for the automobile sculpture outside of Amarillo, TX?
