The Firebird

Lou Rodriquez's avatar Lou Rodriquez

This will be the third year entering with a metal sculpture. In 2010 I made "A Dragon For Jonas", an 8' dragon. In 2011 I made "Butterflies For Noelia" 11' tall butterflies. Now for 2012 I'm making "The Firebird". This piece will be made of stainless steel or mild carbon steel polished...either way it will be shiny. Each feather will be individually welded on. All pieces will be hand made. This piece will be a great photo op for visitors and you will be able to touch it. This piece will be lit at night to highlight the different textures of the feathers. It should be an impressive sight to see at 11' tall.
