Default Cherry Blossom

I don't know if you could call it metal shaping, per se, but it was the first project that really got me interested in learning more about shrinking, stretching and shaping.

On a whim, more or less, I applied to a call for artists to decorate fiberglass "cherry blossoms" as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC in 2019 by offering to build one out of metal. When they accepted, I then had to figure out how I was going to do it, AND finish it in 2 weeks.

Anyway, here's a few pics.

Thanks all! I was pretty happy with how it turned out. It was my first experience with heat n beat - unplanned, as the heat was the tack welds vs. the small mass of each triangle. Was pretty eye opening (metal is clay!!!)

I like that much better than all the fiberglass being blinged out nowadays. Very cool.
