All these projects are made from scraps from the job site…Tramp Art. The first Hammerhead is a plywood grid with sheetmetal molded over (note the bansaw blade for teeth) There is no wood in the other two , they are made out of brick wire. The shark is around 8 feet and the ray is around 9 feet. DATES INCORRECT

See there. Real art! If I tried to do that I would spend all my time trying to figure out how to smoothly put all the metal sheets together, and when I was done it wouldn’t look like a shark at all, while you worry about the shape and
dynamics and produce some really nice sculptures. I’m glad you are around to inspire us!

Those are very cool. Will they oxidize to a nice patina or will they stay nice and shiny?

These would be a great way to keep squirrels off my bird feeders. Great job. Very unique. I bet they’ll rust up over time giving them an even cooler look.
