Lifeline

very small Lifeline copyLIFELINE is an extraordinary sculpture. If you can envision, each curl, each twist is made from a separate piece of metal. A pattern was made and then enlarged for each section. The metal was cut and then put through giant rolling machines that squeeze the metal while rolling it through until the metal curls up the required amount. Then the patterned shape is cut from the metal and each segment is welded to the previous one, until the convex and concave curls all match up. Then the metal is ground off and finished. And the final sculpture is hung on a large hook and  passed through a powder coating process, which is a city block long basically, applying the powder coating material electrostatically and then baking it on, sealing the steel from rusting in the weather.
