Saw-Blade Flower Wall Hanging - "Don't Mess With Texas"

I instantly thought of the Texas flag when I put this together. Sprouted from the junkyard, this flower bloomed in a metal shop. It started as a humble circular-saw blade that was cut apart, welded, and then forged and hammered into shape. It then grew stems of welded chain, with leaves of stainless steel. Finally, it evolved its pistil and stamen from tools, parts, and stainless steel mesh.

The finish is a unique patina of blue and rust on the flower, and green patina on the stem. It has a clear coat finish to slow down corrosion (although it may continue to rust). I welded an eye bolt to the back, making it ready to hang on your wall.

Note: some of the pieces are still sharp, so be careful when you handle it!

It measures approx. 4" wide and 14" tall.
