Chevron Wind Sculpture


I have always been fascinated with the wind. I have flown as a passenger in a 747 and a Piper Cub. I would like to some day fly in a World War I Vintage Two-Seater. In the meantime, I fly with my imagination and create wind sculptures. Here is one of my latest creations! I call it the 'Chevron' because it has angles that remind me of the Indian design. It stands 10' tall and has a turning diameter of 4'. It is made of 25% recycled steel which I painted 'Golden Gate Orange' and accentuated with copper, brass and a piece of copper ore.
