The Copper Rooster
I recently finished a custom project that was really fun and a bit off the beaten path for me. I was asked to make a copper rooster to bring good luck for Juniper, a local restaurant. I don't usually make sculptural pieces so it was really fun to problem solve and see the piece come together.
You can see the project starts with sheet metal. The pieces are cut into long strips and then form folded to create texture for the feathers. He's a hollow guy, so I had to do a little pattern making to figure out how all the parts would fit together. All in all, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out! He's about 12 inches tall, for scale reference.
