How do you “view the world” and our existence in the Universe and what is your perspective on “what you see?” The answer to this question is unique to each of us and “The View” frames that answer for all that look through it’s window. “The View” is an abstract sculpture that is comprised of new materials, reclaimed materials and found objects. The piece is designed to frame a desired view, encompassing “the view” in a 39″ diameter stainless steel circular frame.

The encompassing view sits atop a slender, cement filled, rectangular base made of weathering steel, that tapers to a forged and polished stainless steel mount. The base is also accented with a polished stainless steel disc at the crux of its taper and the entire piece is welded together using stainless steel in the Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding process.

The piece is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and it measures 77″ tall, 39″ wide and 20″ deep. Its slender design makes placement of The View versatile and its maintenance-free construction will ensure many decades of indoor/outdoor enjoyment. The View would make a wonderful addition to any garden or yard and would work equally as well for many commercial and residential indoor applications.

“Flounder de Ferrum” was created for the Art-Drive‘s 2014 “Flippin Flounder” campaign, where Art-Drive members are each tasked with making a flounder in their medium. The flounders are displayed in the local area before the drive, and then auctioned off as part of a fundraising campaign in the days leading up to, and after, the drive.

The Flippin Flounders debuted July 18th at the Westport Rivers Winery’s Friday evening concert and following their debut, they are displayed at various locations in Dartmouth and Westport, MA until the Art-Drive open studio tour August 9th and 10th.

You can see “Flounder de Ferrum” on display at Partner’s Village Store and Kitchen until August 8, 2014.

On August 9th and 10th the Art Drive will take place and my shop and artwork will be on display and available for purchase. Please feel free to stop by and say hi!

From August 2-12, 2014, the Flippin Flounders will be auctioned off through an EBay Auction. The proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the Lloyd Center for the Environment; the Art-Drive and the individual artists.

Flounder de Ferrum is hand-formed and english wheeled from T-304 16 Gauge stainless steel and molten stainless steel for the eyes and other features. The piece was welded together using the Tungsten Inert Gas (T.I.G.) welding process and the patina was obtained by oxidizing the stainless with heat. It measures about 22″ in height, 4″ in depth and 42″ in width

Similar fish can be made and personalized with many effects, to include more details, different materials, different stances and other adornments that you might want to make it special.

“Flounder de Ferrum” and similar wall hangings are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
