Hummingbird Sculpture

This is an indoor kinetic sculpture forged from mild steel. The flower stem balances on the tip of the base and rotates in the horizontal plane. The hummingbird is a wedge fit onto the stem and can be moved slightly to alter the balance. The finish is brushed steel with a protective coating of Renaissance wax.


The hummingbird is forged from a ~ 3" piece of 3/4" round bar. The tubular flower and stem were forged from a ~ 9-1/2" piece of 3/4" round bar. The base is forged from a ~ 21" piece of 1/2" square bar.
