Glyphosate #6 (working title) kinetic sculpture - hydro stone

Regarding the title today I am loving “impact” as a title, I will discuss more on that in another post.

 

On this day I made abstract botanical inspired  shapes out of a variety of materials. Then I whipped up some hydro stone and put a coat on the largest shape. The next day I started arranging the pieces into a kinetic composition.

Glyphosate mobile - New work -

I might call this collapse and disorder.

I started a new shadow/mobile to be part of my Glyphosate series. Last week I started the wings.

Above I am started the wings with some leftover pieces from “Bringing Home The Bacon”  held together with new wire.

Before I left for the day I threw together a body to slap on the wings and see what the shadows look like.  

I am considering the title “collapse and disorder” for this piece.

 

 

I will probably add some hexagon shapes to the sculpture. Which made me wonder why are honeycombs hexagon in shape. Guess what I found?
