Metal Dragonfly

Most of my metalwork so far has been pieces that takes many weeks to complete. This past week, instead of spending all of my metalshop hours on the bear, I used some of them to create bugs. This metal dragonfly took about 3 hours. He’s made out of steel bar and some welding wire. I forged the body, bent the legs with heat and wings without, and welded it all together using oxyacetylene heat. Here’s the piece page, and here are some more photos.
