Another in a series of Steam Punk sculptures I am producing for a show in my Vail gallery . This one is a bodark log crotch cut to resemble a women’s torso. I then turned several walnut rings and screw parts to resemble valves on a south texas oil rig. I assembled them into several sizes and then took oak branches and fashioned them to the rounds and screw stems to look like a handle on a valve. I then forged a rusted 3/4’’ solid metal dowel rods into a curvy shape to get the physical connection of all valves together as a well head. I used no stain just laquer and wax for finish. All this and Heaven too.
