This is a bird man made of gauges and found railroad metal.

The border is made of antique buttons from the Eugenia Baird Collection. The “canvas” is the top from a salvaged wooden electrical spool with a blue wash.

Wings are salvaged wood with some cool alligatored paint.

The sun is made from a tomato can lid, repurposed sandpaper, and a peach nehi cap.

Thanks to Greensboro NC metal artist John Martin for the gauges.

Approximately 24″ in diameter and 1 1/2″ thick, Banded with salvaged metal.IMG_5598
