This aluminum flower is a test for a public project proposal. I have never really worked with metal before, so I’m still trying to figure out details. It’s a lot of fun to bend and mold the material. I think I am going to try to solder the wire to the petals. Oh, and don’t worry Roxy Paine (whose work I love), they won’t remain silver. I plan to paint these in black paint and coat parts in black glitter.
