    Weldress, you have more talent in your pinky fingernail then I have in my whole body. Anything I have built would be like bringing a bicycle to a NASCAR race. I could look at your work all day. You have extrodenary talent. You should have a web site.

    Weldress,

    Very, very nice work. You wouldn't happen to have a website would you? I would like to point some folks in your direction.

    Thanks,

    Wow!

    Just found this board and your amazing sculptures, Weldress. Beautiful!

    You asked about female welders... I am just starting out, but I belong to an art collective called "The Flaming Lotus Girls". We do kinetic, metal, and fire art.

    Our latest piece is the Serpent Mother, you can check her out here:

    I'm also involved in a robotic project called Swarm:

    Great to see your art and I look forward to the updates!

    Default Serpent Mother

    I sat through a long dial-up download (arrrghhh!) to see the photos, and boy was it ever worth it!! Good luck with your fundraising. How do you keep the head painted with all that heat? And I assume it disassembles to transport it.

    Thanks!

    Although we are mostly women, we do have some men our group too, so we won't wipe you out.

    Weldress, we actually don't paint the head at all. She's made mostly of stainless steel with some copper accents. So the brownish color you see on the head is actually copper, as is the egg. We do have to polish the copper occasionally. The eyes are some sort of painted glass with lights behind them, but there isn't a lot of heat in that area. You can actually touch the vertebra of the spine and it is cool to the touch when the fire is on because all the fire is at the top. The fire is fueled by propane along the spine and the egg is fueled by methane. A fun part of the serpent is that there are control boxes along the support ribs where people can go up and press the buttons to release big "poofs" of fire along each vertebra. So it's a bit interactive that way and people love it.

    Oh, and it does dissasemble and fits into a 40 ft by 8ft tall container for shipping. It takes about a week to assemble and dissassemble (accounting for the fact that many people have to work during the day).
