CNC Sculpture, machine art, machined metal sculpture, Industrial art

It seems February has been a very productive month, so here I am once again with another set of works. This time it is an edition of three small sculptures, a format which I am quite fond of, and one that has yielded a seemingly never ending stream of inspiration to this particular sculptor. 

These are more or less 3"x3"x2" each, The bodies are solid stainless steel and the details are anodized aluminum in blue orange and red respectively..

I took a very minimal approach for a stand on these, they display very well when propped up just a little bit, so I made these little brass pieces with a divot in the tip. They sit perfectly under the little button detail on the back like so. 


  A shot for scale as usual


Much like my last piece, This design required me to make a special tool for tightening the little colored caps on the back of the pieces, It also served as an arbor for holding the center spherical shape for milling. I am assembling quite an interesting collection of these special little tools. 

I am starting work on a companion set to this one, when I was developing this piece, it kind of split into two separate works so I decided to make both. The drawing will accompany that work so stay tuned for more in a few weeks.

Comments and questions welcome as always.
