This item has been sold but I can re-create it, or make one customized for you.
I made this sculpture out of scrap pieces of metal that were MIG welded together. It has a bearing welded to the rotor so the pieces swivels or turns in a stiff breeze. As you can see from the pics, it casts some really interesting shadows as it turns.
My goal is to re-purpose, re-use, or re-cycle as many pieces of scrap as possible. The brake rotor came off my daughters car when I changed her brakes. The center bearing came off an idler pulley from my truck. The rod was left over from a previous project and the main piece is from a 2'x'8 metal wall stud that a contractor was throwing away.
The piece is about 5 feet tall and weighs around 40 pounds. The upright is bolted to the bearing with a piece I made on my metal lathe so it can be partially disassembled for shipment.
Right now it has its natural finish plus some discoloration from welding. I used the electrolysis process to clean and stabilize the rotor. Over time this will develop a rust or patina. .
This piece would look great as a piece of outdoor yard art, in a park or even in an office setting.
