"A brush with love"
This piece came together because I discovered an old metal box that had some interesting components inside it. It reminded me of the workings of a human body, but without a heart. I remembered I had an old sprinkler head that would make a suitable heart. I then searched for an appropriate head amongst my collection of old brushes. Next, he needed arms and legs! These items I had stored with a bunch of other interesting old pieces of scrap metal.
I then had to assemble everything using metalworking and woodworking techniques.
Once the sculpture was finished, I had to give it a name and photograph it for promotion on my web site and social media.
After promoting the piece for just one day this artwork was sold to a customer in Melbourne, Victoria.
The next step was to make up a wooden box for freight. It required a foam lining and packaging so that he would be safe during transportation to his new home.
