  • Corpus Sculpture

    I was commissioned to make a 5 ft. tall corpus sculpture to hang at the parish of St. Marry Magdalene, Brighton MI. Design was created by me and my brother ( Noah Hornberger) have about 30hours into it so far.

    Looks awesome so far. Is it stainless or are you painting or powder coating it?

      Steel

      It is made out of 16 gauge hot rolled sheet metal and the linen cloth will be made out of copper. When it is finished I am going to spray it with a few coats of automotive clear coat.

        Looks good man. I think I met one of your former instructors in Ypsi a few weeks back, we were talking about sculptures and he mentioned a former student that was working on a piece for a church.

        I like how you did the lay out.

                Fantastic!

                That is some fantastic work. I'm afraid that if I ever tried to do something like that it would look like a suit of armor that was just run over by a bulldozer.

                I like the post-modernistic twist to old world mythology. It's like reverse steampunk! The Greek, Roman and Christian gods are all so interesting. ...do one of Allah and you'll have a fatwa against you!

                Great job!

                        You know something, after I finish a weld on structural steel or pipe, it'll get painted or buried and thats the last anyone will see or even think of it. But what you're doing is something people will see daily. They will look at your work and be inspired either to pray, meditate or simply... be moved.
                        It is an awesome talent you've been blessed with and I truly admire your work. Bob.

                            The progress I have made to date! All He needs is hands and feet, and a method of hanging him on a brick wall. Welding Copper was a new experience for me, Takes lots of heat!
