Nemo

 

 

This sculpture was inspired by a piece made by sculptor that I admire and I felt I had to make my own interpretation, a remix or homage to his work. The rear propeller spins and there’s flashing lights on the dash when powered.

 

I really liked working with the combination of glass and aluminium in this piece and it’s a combination odd components the aluminium base came from a floor sander and the thick glass dome was originally an explosion-proof light fixture.  The propeller was from an old 1/25 hp outboard motor and the 45 deg shaft coupling was from my father’s old whipper-snippier.
