Alien Spear

thomas ramey's avatar thomas ramey

Alien Spear is a cross between a very primitive weapon and something an alien warrior might use. I wanted to do a suspended sculpture that could be install anywhere. My main idea being a very high ceiling. The use of the pulley and rope made it possible for me to achieve that range. Keeping with the primitive feel, copper plating was chosen as the finish with the natural walnut wooden top. Every part of the sculpture is hand formed. A sculpture that lives outside the box of contemporary pedestal display. Giving life to a new way of thinking about sculpture installation.
