The opportunity was given, a well known restaurant from the city wanted me to manufacture a chestnut baker from 200 l oil barrels. The challenge was that the design should fit the atmosphere of the restaurant and of the city and of course it should bake delicious chestnuts as well. The barrels were parted into 3 parts, from the bottom to the top: ashholder, fire area, chestnut baker. I made 15x15 mm rings from profile, on them I welded 2mm thick circles from sheet. All these were given in advance a special form according to their function. Finally these profile rings were fixed on the side of the barrel with M6 screws. At the bottom, for the sake of the design, I made 40mm holes to help the circulation of the air. The edge of the chestnut baker plate is made of 10mm dia. steelrod, the side of a 2mm sheet, the grill a 2mm perforated sheet. The lid 6mm dia. steelrod, on this I welded from a 1mm sheet a concave shape, made with the help of my englishwheel. The upper part was given a chimney and a chimney holder, on the bottom I fixed 2 wheels for easy transportation. The dominant colours are the black and silver. Hope you like it !!!
No, not for a wife but for a company's 30th anniversary. The statue is 26 cm high, made of old spare parts like screws, springs, gearwheels and rolling bear balls, etc. In its right arm the dragon is holding a plane because the company is manufacturing plane spare parts, the dragon itself recalls the past,the time when the company was founded. Its final colour was given by heat-treat patina, this is a procedure through which we get a dark toning and protection against rust. Such a piece of art takes approximately 3-4 days to make and it cost around 150 €. It is your turn now to order your unique present.
So this puzzle it's a really big challange. The autor of the puzzle is Livio Zucca italian matematician. He said: if you do'nt have a hell of luck, you need 3 lifetime to solve it. Theoreticly there is just one solution.
I've managed to collect many used spare parts due to my car mechanic pre-life. One night the idea came and I did the first chess-piece. Then the other 2000 spare part pieces came together within a few month. Here it is...
I think there are 2 types of artists, good and lousy. The latter's art doesn't touch you but the other's just keeps you perplexed, unable to move for a short time, trying to decode every inch of it, its message. To be honest I don't think I belong to any of the two groups. I am saying this because when the idea comes I try to smuggle some utility into the given metal statue or sculpture. If YOU feel the spark incubated which might be some futuristic item, present or ornament, just contact me! We'll do some sketches and bring it to life! I promise!
