Copper Fountain Leftovers

One would think that it would be easy to make a Copper Fountain Leftovers .  Isn't it just like having leftovers for dinner?  Throw in what you have in the refrigerator and perhaps add something new to spice it up.  With all the cut out parts of suns, butterflies, leaves, kelp and other objects there was plenty of parts to work with.  Putting them int what is an abstract oriented fountain was not so easy for me.  I guess, an abstract object that is functional, is difficult for me to picture. For much of my life I have worked with defined structures, and was able to picture the outcome.  Here it was what fit where and how with no parameters, borders or rules except to make it work and see what the outcome was.

As you look at the picture, and think back to other projects,  can you see what might be scraps of different projects?  The butterfly should be easy, the lower half of the fireballs should be easy.  The portions attached to base are from the Ocean Floor fountain and some of the pieces coming out of the copper tubing that extends up, around and over before joining the base again are from the Swaying in the Current LED sculpture.  The tubing for the both the fountain and the abstract portion, are cut off pieces from other projects as is the base.

How did it come out?

I am pleased with the sound, looks and the challenge in figuring out where the pieces come from.

Would I do another?

Not out of scraps,  I would take new pieces that are cut and fit to what my mind comes up with and assemble on the fly.

 

Description:  Ceramic pot that measures 16" diameter 14" tall with and overall dimension of 24" with the sculpture.  Butterfly is landing on a leaf that is splashed by the flower above with two other flowers dripping water.  Random pieces of copper placed on arching tubing.

 

All sculptures are unique.  The picture above represents what yours may look like when it is completed especially for you.
